Boquet Forest offers a 1,029±-acre timberland property with excellent access and a full range of underlying development, conservation, recreation, and timber values. The property includes wholly enclosed Mud Pond and substantial frontage along the North Branch of the Boquet River – a Wild and Scenic River with wild brook trout that is also stocked annually with yearling brook and brown trout. In addition, the lower Boquet River has seen a return of naturally reproducing salmon runs since the removal of the Willsboro dam in 2015. The property is inside Adirondack Park with favorable Rural Use and Low Intensity APA Land Classification designations, which generally allow low-intensity rural residential development. The forest resource offers a predominantly white pine resource with smaller areas of hardwood and mixed wood stands. Portions of the property northwest of Mud Pond have seen recent harvest activity. A fresh timber inventory is currently underway with expected summer-2020 completion. Recreational trails and logging roads connect throughout the property providing for snowmobiling and other recreational uses. The property is readily accessed just five minutes off exit 32 Adirondack Northway (I-87) via Route 12 and Route 9 to Hutchins Swamp Lane. Ten-minute drive south to the primary municipal center of Elizabethtown, New York.
