Though this forest was once decimated by the Asian Longhorned Beetle infestation and resulting tree removal in 2009, the recovery that has taken place is remarkable. In the Spring there are several vernal pools to explore and a wide variety of wildflowers blanket the forest floor. Moose have been spotted here! Camping is offered by permission.
