Tug Hill State Forest
Copenhagen, NY 13626
State Forest: Bike, Birding, Fish, Hike, Snow Sports, Walk
his 12,242-acre state forest, actually a combination of four neighboring forests, is so named because it is located entirely on the Tug Hill Plateau, an area that is renowned for its harsh winters and heavy snowfalls. Because of the heavy snow cover that this area endures for nearly half of the year, it is no surprise that winter sports such as snowmobiling, snowshoeing, dogsledding, and cross-country skiing dominate the local recreational scene. Other popular outdoor activities include white-tailed deer and snowshoe hare hunting, woodland hiking and biking, and brook trout fishing. Access to the area is provided by over 16 miles of graveled forest roads and is highlighted by the well known 13.2 mile Barnes Corners Cross-country Ski Trail System.
