The 9,856 acre White Hill Wild Forest is bounded on the west and north by the Adirondack Park Blue Line, on the east by the St. Lawrence-Franklin County Line, and on the south by the West Branch of the St. Regis River, Stark-Joe Indian Road, and NY 56. The wild forest is located near Higley Flow State Park. White Hill Wild Forest is remote and does not see many visitors. The area can easily be accessed via the seasonal dirt Clear Pond Road.

The White Hill Wild Forest is located in the northwest corner of the Adirondack Forest Preserve. The area offers many recreational opportunities, including, but not limited, to hiking, hunting, trapping and fishing. Several snowmobile trails also pass through the area and link to a larger network of trails. The publicly owned land also has five beautiful, wild ponds - some that require an hour-long hike to access. These ponds have been described as among the quietest waters in the entire Adirondack Park and are the most popular destinations within the wild forest.

In 2011 the NY DEC constructed an accessible trail and campsite on Clear Pond with an addition accessible tent site across the road. The campsite features a new accessible privy, a large area with a hardened surface, and an accessible picnic table with a great view of the pond. Although it is not shown on the map below, there is a trail that goes around Clear Pond. This gives backpackers access to designated campsites around the pond as well as creating a pleasant loop hike.

There are also pieces of White Hill Wild Forest along Joe Indian Road on Blake Falls Reservoir. Look below for a list of destinations as well as a few maps of White Hill Wild Forest.
