Deruyter Forest

Deruyter Forest lies just east of Deruyter Reservoir on the hill across from Highland Forest County Park. It's surrounded by private property to the north, east and west so the way to approach it is from the south or via the parking lot on the North Country Trail to its west at the northeast end of the reservoir. Either way I've never encountered anyone passing through this forest so it's a great place to go and find some peace and quiet. Aside from the NCT there are unmarked trails going around the perimeter of the forest and linking to the parking area at the end of the long dirt road leading to it from the south entrance.
