Hiking in Schuyler County
New York State Lands
The 937 acre Texas Hollow State Forest is located about 6 miles east of Watkins Glen, near the hamlet of Bennettsburg in the towns of Hector and Catharine in Schuyler County.
There is one pond (see panorama above) constructed with a man-made dike, with a concrete control structures to discharge water. This pond can be accessed from Texas Hollow Rd with a short walk down an access road that also leads to the Finger Lakes Trail / North Country Trail. In addition Texas Hollow State Forest has several naturally occurring ponds and bogs.
The white blazed Finger Lakes Trail / North Country Trail travels through Texas Hollow State Forest. A 0.7 mile blue blazed side trail called the Texas Hollow Loop Trail is also located in the forest. The loop starts and ends off the FLT/NCT, creating a pleasant short loop hike.
From Watkins Glen take NY 79 east. Turn right onto Texas Hollow Rd.
