: , , ,

This forest consists of conifer plantations intermixed with native hardwoods and conifers spread across a hilltop on an area approximately two miles wide and three miles long. Perkins Pond ,which is privately owned, is visible from County route 42. The outlet from this pond flows downstream through a scenic gorge. The Plank Road follows this gorge from its intersection with Rte. 42 near Perkins Pond and leads to the hamlet of South Otselic. This road is an unplowed, narrow dirt road which is closed to motor vehicles west of the intersection with Purse Road. Visitors who wish to view the gorge can best see it by hiking along the Plank Road. During the fall, deer hunting is a popular activity on the forest; and in winter the Plank Road is used as part of the snowmobile corridor trail system.
