Hiking in Adirondack Park
West Central Region
The 511 acre Flatrock Mountain Conservation Easement Tract is located off NY 28 southwest of Old Forge in the west central region of the Adirondacks. The land is owned by the Northeastern Loggers Association. A kiosk is located at a large parking area along NY 28, which is where you'll find access to the property. The public is encouraged by the land owners to enjoy this property.
The large, marked parking area is located along NY 28, 3.1 miles SW of the railroad station in Thendara, 5.8 miles NE from the Moose River bridge. This parking area is also a trailhead for the Ha De Ron Dah Wilderness and people usually hiking to Middle Settlement Lake or Middle Branch Lake. The GPS coordinates of the parking area is N43 40.427 W75 03.290 for those who have a GPS devise.
The Northeastern Loggers Association or NELA for short, plans to develop more roads and trails to reach all corners of this 500+ acre property. For those looking to learn about the forest, there is an informational kiosk as well as a self guided hiking tour of the property. Most of the trails were once used to drag logs out of the area during timber harvesting. Look below for a picture of the kiosk and a 2014 hiking map (taken from the kiosk).
