Huntington Town Forest
The Huntington Town Forest is a 100-acre parcel adjacent to Camels Hump and is locally called a hidden jewel. The 2009 Management Plan for the forest declared the primary goal to be maintaining and enhancing the wildlife habitat with secondary goals of recreation, wood products, and education. It’s high elevation offers a unique mix of forest types and wildlife habitat, yet it lacks public access and is inaccessible to local residents. The Huntington Conversation Commission engaed in this project to get feedback from the community and technical assistance as they grapple with whether to continue to hold on to the current town forest parcel or explore the acquisition of another more easily accessible one.
