Urbana State Forest

If you are looking for a no-frills place to go hiking, visit Urbana State Forest, five miles north of Hammondsport, NY. The state forest allows you to travel down two different trail loops. One loop is 7.1 miles and the other is 4.8 miles. Each trail takes you by Huckleberry Bog where you can spy on wetland creatures from the Wildlife Observation Platform. Depending on the season, hunting and trapping are also popular recreational activities in the area. For more information call the State Forest Office at (607) 776-2165.
