The Georges Highland Path has a well-blazed 5-mile loop through this lovely forest. The guide book is accurate about what is there, but being there was quite powerful. American chestnut, porcupine, and a great blue heron in a woodland stream were natural history highlights. The fire tower is gone. The trail head described is OK, but there's a more formal one, with maps, that's part of the Georges Highland Path. We never did find that.
