Primitive camping is allowed here and we even found a fire ring on the east side of the pond. Returned back the way we came on a very hot late summer afternoon. About 1.4 miles RT.

Hand Hollow State Forest(New Lebanon)
Went to explore a very recent New York State land acquisition in the town of New Lebanon after work today. The 518 acre Hand Hollow State Forest was purchased from Little Pine LLC and Columbia Land Conservancy in December 2014 and was opened to the public back in April. Just last week the DEC began clear cutting a trail and parking area along County Route 34(Hand Hollow Rd).
