    Acquired during the 1960s, Hunts Pond State Forest is the most recently established State Forest in Chenango County. Its 1,397 acres traverse the valley of a feeder stream to the Unadilla River, giving way to a very diverse landscape of open fields, softwood plantations, hardwood forests, and beaver meadows.

    Views of the Unadilla River valley are spectacular from the large open field on the western part of the forest. For those who want to see a beaver family hard at work, be sure to visit the beaver meadow in the south-central area, just off of Buttermilk Falls Road.

    Various unmarked trails and logging lanes crisscross the forest; they can be used for hiking and cross-country skiing. Whether you are a hunter, hiker, camper, skier or just a general outdoor enthusiast, Hunts Pond State Forest is sure to provide the recreational opportunity you are looking for.
