Scattered throughout southern Erie County, the segments of the Erie County Forest began, for the most part, as tracts of farmland purchased from landowners in the late 1920s and 1930s. Thanks to the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression, a whopping 7.5 million trees were planted on this land, creating the stands of hardwood—from black cherry to sugar maple—and evergreens (red pine, spruce, white pine, and others) that are now dense enough to block the sun and sky as you hike between them.
