The primary recreational uses are fishing and hunting; however the public also participates in hiking, camping, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and wildlife watching on these lands.
Both the trail to the Fire Tower on Lyon Mountain and the Lewis Preserve Wildlife Management Area are often frequented by the public.
A UMP for the Chazy Highlands Complex must be completed before new recreational facilities, such as trails, tent sites and parking areas, can be constructed.
The plan will culminate in a series of management actions to be implemented over a five-year period, including public recreational access and increasing trails and campsites.
Any interested individual or organization wanting to be included on a mailing list for information about development of the unit management plan or wishing to submit comments should contact Planning Coordinator Dan Levy by writing him at NYSDEC, P. O. Box 296, Ray Brook, NY, 12977; calling 897-1291 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
