Don't do it!! I was there for a short 10 min. walk on unmarked trails that were somewhat overgrown (with ruts from vehicles driving on it). Flies were nasty. When i got back to my hotel this eve I found a tick on me (first time I ever had a tick on me!). The parking area is a big drop off from the road. My tire was spinning trying to get back onto the road when I left. There is nothing nice about this place, other than it being secluded. Don't risk getting lost and covered in ticks!!
Highland lakes state park is the place to go for a great walk along 4H paths made for horses. Do not bring dirt bikes or other motor related bikes as they do not allow it and the DEC patrols the paths... You will get caught and face a hefty fine!!!
Can't say anything since the lake is accessible only by hiking or on horseback.
I grew up exploring this park as a child. There is nothing scary about it unless you are scared of nature. A lot of it used to be farmland owned by my grandfather and others. A few ruins exist from the former farm houses. It was also used for motocross racing by my dad, uncle, and many other local legends. That's why many of the trails are there. The state took the land from the farmers in the 80s to add to the Stewart buffer zone and it's remained untouched since then, except for a few modifications at the entrances. That's why there are no signs, development, or maintenance. Now, only non-motorized recreation is permitted, like hiking, biking, horseback riding, etc. Despite the description above, no fishing (or hunting) is permitted. Seeing trash? Pick it up! No one from the state is going to do it. It's up to the people who enjoy the park to maintain its beauty.
Beautiful park, very well kept
