F. Gilbert Hills State Forest Professional Review and Guide
"A number of rocky ridges, swamps, and secluded ponds provide the hiker with diverse scenery at the sprawling F. Gilbert Hills State Forest. The forest has a wide assortment of such trees as red pine, spruce, tupelo, and dogwood, as well as abundant wildlife including deer, pheasant, grouse, and fox.
The Civilian Conservation Corps was active here during the 1930s, hacking out many of the roads, planting red pines, and digging water holes to provide a ready source of water in case of forest fire. Seventeen of these stone-lined water holes can still be seen, with most of them situated along High Rock Road. Highlights: Stream, numerous trails through forest."
