This beautiful property, very secluded on a seasonal use road, offers nice whitetail, wildlife & waterfowl opportunities with options for a hunting camp or great vacation getaway. This mostly-level property provides several choices for parking, camper, or cabin locations. A central trail system provides access into the property through the meadows. Two streams provide a water source with 1627’ of water frontage and several natural beaver ponds. The woods consist of a mix of young hardwood stands, hemlock, pine, and various softwoods. Wild apple trees dot the landscape, providing additional food for deer, turkey, and other local wildlife. The former ag fields could be brought back into active production or made into food plots, further enhancing whitetail hunting. With the woods surrounding the multiple open areas, there are many different choices for locating deer blinds and tree stands strategically. The property is located just ¾ mile down the road from the 9000 acre Pharsalia Woods State Forest, which offers additional hunting, cross-country skiing, mountain biking, snowmobiling, hiking, and wildlife observation. A nine-mile truck trail passes atop a forested plateau and offers visitors many great views, an elevated covered viewing platform overlooking the 90-acre Round Pond wetland complex.
