The property offers multiple outdoor recreational opportunities such as hiking, bird watching, wildlife watching, wildlife photography, ATV riding, and large and small game hunting. The Dolan Property has two fields totaling approximately 8 acres. The lower field is located close to County Route 151 and would make a great location for a house site.

There was a small surface mining operation that was active on the property in the 1980'S. The area impacted by the surface mine was reclaimed and today is covered with grassland and in some areas is being recaptured by a natural hardwood forest. The property also has the opportunity to provide future income through the harvesting of timber. The timber was last harvested approximately 12 years ago.
