A large parcel of NYS timberland with a seasonal or year round camp in the Southern Adirondacks for sale in the Town of Ohio: Looking for a place to rough it, yet prefer a roof over your head at night? Care to walk out on your cabin porch at dawn or dusk to relax, sip your hot drink and absorb only the sights and sounds of nature? A place to enjoy all the creatures that frequent mountain ponds and cold water creeks? This would be the place! You would be hard pressed to find another property that has all the virtues this one has for the same price. Little York and Ash Creeks, vibrant year round streams, flow through the upper half of the property, slowed only by the occasional beaver dam. Bordered on the north by lands of the state, grants the owner endless opportunities to explore the Black River Wild Forest. The steel roofed, insulated, 1,344 sf log cabin with large screened in front porch, open entrance porch and balcony, is located at the end of Unclemier Road. Adirondack design and craftsmanship on the interior of the cabin, is emphasized in the use of peeled logs for floor supports, joists and railings, and knotty pine paneling and lumber found in the walls, stairs, and cabinetry. A wood stove is the main source of heat, while propane is the second choice of fuel for cooking, hot water and refrigeration. A solar electric system also contributes mainly to the lighting requirements of the cabin. You'll never have to worry about your supply of fresh cold, clear water as the Artesian well out back flows year round!
This large tract of land, just inside the 'blue line', is 90% hardwood forest, with pockets of spruce, fir and hemlock is abundant with wildlife diversity. Popular large and small game species found in this area include: deer, bear, turkey, and grouse as well as a variety of ducks and geese. In addition, 7 food plots were created on the property to help attract and nourish wildlife. Roughly 1/3 of the acreage was harvested 8 - 10 years ago and has nicely regenerated to preferred species including: black cherry, yellow birch, hard and soft maple and American beech. Previously harvested areas are now in the pole and small sawtimber size class and may benefit from an immediate light thinning at this time, making this property a great investment for both now and for the future. Both Ash and Little York Creeks bisect the property as they travel southwest to form Black Creek which is partly responsible for filling Hinckley Reservoir, the water source for the City of Utica. A series of established woods roads and trails throughout the property allow for easy access and mobility by foot, snowshoes, snowmobile, skis, ATV or 4wd vehicle. Snowmobile trail C4 passes by the southwest corner and State land stretches across the entire northern boundary. Access is from Unclemier Road on the south and Little York Trail to Gray Wilmurt Road on the north. There are plenty of excellent settings where one might choose to build a small camp or cabin. Fifteen minutes from the West Canada Creek and Hinckley Reservoir and just 50 minutes north of Herkimer and the NYS Thruway, give one the opportunity to fulfill a bucket list of activities on, or near the property, whether you live nearby or travel from afar. Situated in the southwest portion of the Adirondack Forest Preserve makes travel to this property a short day trip from NYC, NJ, PA & CT. This is a spectacular find for that family or club that truly enjoys the wilds of the Adirondacks!
