NYS Forest In Columbia County Gets Improvements

Jul 1, 2017

Improvements have been completed at a New York state forest in Columbia County.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced the improvements to the 518-acre Hand Hollow State Forest in the town of New Lebanon during a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Improvements include a new eight-car parking lot on Hand Hollow Road near Schoolhouse Road; a trail open to motorized use by permit for people with disabilities; and an accessible fishing dock at the pond. The improvements cost about $45,000 and are part of the governor’s Adventure NY initiative.
