The 75-acre Fittz Family Memorial Forest is adjacent to the Orange Town Forest and other protected land and provides a valuable link in the North Pond Ridge Trail, itself a link in the larger Chestnut Hill Trail system. The memorial forest’s trail begins in a stand of mixed hardwood, proceeds along a ridge dominated by oak and pine, and then descends through a hemlock woods to a lovely stream. Recreation, forestry, and scientific and educational activities are the management goals of the New England Forestry Foundation for this land.

Directions:

From Rte. 2, take Exit 15, Rte. 122, toward Orange center. Turn left at the first light, onto West River St. Go to the end of that street and turn left onto Holtshire Rd. Proceed to corner with view of Lake Matawa and turn right onto Chestnut Hill Rd. Trail starts 1/3 mile on left.
