Harris Road Forest is a multiple-use property with end-of-the-road solitude, direct access to State Forest Preserve Lands and compelling Adirondack views. The property is in the southeastern corner of New York’s Adirondack Park, within 10 minutes of Interstate 87 (Adirondack Northway). The historic town of Horicon includes a classic village center, 5 miles west of the property, beautiful Brant Lake, and a balanced mix of year-round and seasonal residents. Nearby, larger towns include Lake George Village (25 miles), Glens (30 miles) and Saratoga Springs (40 miles). New York City and Boston are within a 4-hour drive.
Harris Road Forest features well-drained hardwood sites, gently-sloping upland terrain, and captivating, long-range mountain views. When considering its shared boundary with nearly 70,000 acres of state lands, the property presents an outstanding purchase opportunity for those seeking a private getaway close to the Northway and the Lake George Region. From the terminus of Harris Road, a town-maintained corridor with utilities, a private woods road climbs gradually across gentle hardwood slopes for 300 feet before reaching the property’s western perimeter. As it enters the land, the road culminates at a former log landing site with southern exposure and long-range views of Gore Mountain. This would make a private and desirable homesite.
The property’s forest resource offers a canvass of recently thinned, young hardwood and softwood stands, which can support a variety of long-term ownership objectives. Major species include a diverse mix of maples, ash, beech, hemlock, white pine and other associates. While much of the forest will remain in a free-to-grow pattern over the next 10 years, new growth will enhance existing food and cover for deer and turkey. The two-tiered forest canopy inside the property’s bounds offers a complimentary wildlife habitat mix to the mature, dense Forest Preserve lands to the east.
