State Lands Interactive Mapper

The State Lands Interactive Mapper (SLIM) is an internet mapping tool that allows users to discover recreational features such as roads, trails, and parking lots on DEC owned lands, print maps, and obtain supported information on the use of state owned forest lands. In addition to general mapping of recreational features, SLIM provides for limited spatial data analysis. Supporting these functions SLIM is a dynamic map interface that the user can manipulate with common mapping tools such as: zoom, pan, identify, print, search, and more.

DEC Lands, Trails and Points of Interest Disclaimer

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) distributes this geographic data with the understanding that geographic data, including land boundaries as represented, are approximate, and are intended for broad scale planning, inventory, mapping and analysis activities. No survey level accuracy is conveyed. No proof of land ownership is represented. NYS DEC makes no guarantee or warranty concerning the accuracy of information contained in the geographic data. In order to improve data quality, the user is asked to document discovery of errors to the Division of Lands and Forests in writing. Lands data should be used for general information purposes and not to determine property boundaries. In many instances, the state lands and other data layers do not align precisely with the aerial photography. Certain trails and points of interest which may exist on the ground are not currently displayed in this mapper. These datasets are works in progress and will continually be improved.

Conservation Easement Information

Conservation Easements are a land conservation tool used to protect a variety of important natural resources on privately owned land, while limiting future development, but allowing for continued private ownership and management. Lands now protected by conservation easements consist of large tracts of commercial timberland in the Adirondack and Tug Hill regions.
The State has acquired some level of public recreation rights on most large, working-forest easement properties. Public hunting may be restricted or prohibited while public access may be suspended or relocated due to forest management activities. Management Plans are available from NYSDEC regional offices as they are developed for specific easement properties. People who plan to visit a conservation easement property that is open for public recreation are encouraged to contact the regional DEC office nearest to where the easement property is located for current recreational access information.
