LAND The 71± acres of forested land has good access over 3,800 feet of road frontage and interior trail.

Located in the foothills of Wadsworth Mountain and Mount Chase, elevations on the property range from 810 to more than 1,000 feet above sea level.
NRCS soil survey indicated that much of the soil type is Thorndike, a soil type usually found on hills and mountains. This is a shallow soil formed in a thin mantle of till derived principally from slate, phyllite, or shale. As a somewhat excessively drained soil it is dry a good portion of the year. It does well promoting the growth of the tree species found on this site, and on some of the lesser slopes, could be cleared and cultivated.
Potential uses for this property would include timber management, off grid cabin or home location, seasonal rentals for camping or cabin rental, future division and lot sales, hunting, riding, hiking and many more recreational uses.
