Higginson-Henry Wildlife Management Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Wooded ridgetops and bottomlands full of intermittent streams offer the hiker pleasant walking and a good chance to see wild flowers, turkeys, and deer.
This wildlife area is on land that used to be part of an army training base named Camp Breckinridge. After World War II, the federal government closed the facility and sold off the level acreage to private buyers. The hilly part not suitable for farming was acquired by the state and turned into this 5,424-acre wildlife management area. Shaped in a long, thin rectangle, it stretches across a series of ridges and ravines, all of moderate grade. The area was named for two local sportsmen killed in a boating accident.
This hike uses a variety of paths and forest tracks to follow the rolling terrain across most of the Higginson-Henry area. The ridgetops off er some limited views north and west, but there are no good overlooks or other special points of interest. This is attractive but simple forestland."
