Hiking in Cortland County
Baker School House
The 1276 acre Baker School House State Forest is located in the towns of Freetown and Solon in the middle of Cortland County. Its a great place to explore and do activities like hiking, hunting, trapping, bird watching, nature observation, and primitive camping.
Baker School House State Forest has a section of the Finger Lakes Trail / North Country National Scenic Trail that travels through it. A Public Forest Access Road provides an easy approach into the northern section of the forest. There are currently no other designated trails within the forest. There is an old CCC built stone pool near the Finger Lakes Trail / North Country Trail, off Baker Schoolhouse Road.
You can find more info on this state forest from the NY DEC website.
Baker School House State Forest may be accessed by taking NY 41 to Baker School House Road which runs diagonally through the forest. Parking is limited, but available from the shoulder of the road. There is also a seasonal dirt road that runs through the forest.
