Lot: 113.00 acre
off Drown Road NYS Forested land with 2 small beaver ponds for sale: Located on ~113 acres in the Town of Clinton, NY is The Churubusco Lodge – Crystal Pond Forest. Two small beaver ponds, Crystal and Cooper, so named, sit side by side on the southern boundary of this intriguing piece of land. Each pond lends it's self to a private cabin setting offering beautiful views and easy access from Crystal Pond Road. A short walk north on Boundary Road, brings you to the almost 2000 acre “The Gulf” Unique Area owned by NYS, so named for the gorge running through the land, several hundred feet deep. Not far from the gorge lie the remains of Sam Smith's cabin. More on the 'Hermit of the Gulf' may be found in the owner's narrative. Miles of well established roads and trails on the property allow biking, hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and ATVing. Access to the property is at the terminus of Drown Road, through an imposing 8 foot gate. Drown Road is a hardtop road to within 1.25 miles of the C. Lodge property. Beyond the hardtop is a seasonal road, not maintained in winter. That portion could be plowed if winter entry is desired. The present Lodge owners have frequently accessed the property in the winter. Power ends at the hardtop. This area has been deemed ideal for wind power generation. Plans to position a windmill near this property was part of the Marble River Wind Project Survey. The owner will retain that site and wind development rights in the event that a project should move forward in the future. The approximate location of the site is shown on the attached map. The hardwood forests in this section of the property were carefully logged in the past 15 years, by a veteran logger, overseen by a professional forester. The emerging growth is a favorite forage of deer and provides both food and cover for other wildlife as well. The residual stands are made up of sugar and red maple, white, gray and yellow birch, beech, ash, aspen and many other species, including hemlock, spruce & fir. Hunters and wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy the exciting opportunities to hunt, view and photograph whitetails, black bear, coyote, partridge, Canada geese, ducks, snowshoe hare, woodcock and squirrel.
