As you enter the timber a small dip in elevation gives way to the Doolittle Creek which bisects a portion of the property before leaving way to neighboring ground.  Beavers have dammed a section of the creek which providing Stillwater habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife.  The diverse timber stand is comprised of maple, oak, beech, ash, hemlock and other hard and softwood tree species.  For the deer hunter the thick understory, abundant browse and various benches throughout the timber stand provide excellent food, security and transitional cover for deer making this an ideal bedding area and/or safe haven from potential adjacent hunting pressure.  A multitude of well-established logging roads weave throughout the property’s entirety creating a simple travel system and easy access on foot or while ATV or side-by-side.
