Hogsback Trail in Hogsback State Forest

Olympic Byway, State Rt. 3, near Natural Bridge in Jefferson County

This 624 acre state forest is named for the glacial esker forming the geological backbone of the area.

From Harrisville, take State Route 3 south. Proceed 6 miles. Hardwoods dominate the forest cover, with the notable exception of a 52 acre stand of large native white pine surrounding Fitzgerald Pond. This pond and the larger Hogsback Pond are also of glacial origin, and are rumored to harbor sizeable largemouth bass. Other recreational pursuits hunting and woodland hiking. Limited ATV motor vehicle access for people with disabilities by permit is available to the forest interior via the 0.7 mile Hogsback Trail. Contact the local NYS DEC District 6 office for details.
