The 26,702-acre Aldrich Pond Wild Forest is part of the Adirondack Forest Preserve. The 356-acre Aldrich Easement Tract and 214-acre Sucker Lake Easement Tract are conservation easements in the Adirondacks. Located within the Western Adirondack Foothills these units contain hardwood forests, coniferous swamps and a large bog south of Streeter Lake. The terrain is relatively flat in the southeastern portion of the unit and hilly in the remainder.
The two conservation easements are private lands with specific public access and recreational rights. Respect the rights of the property owner and their lessees. Obey all posted signs and do not trespass. Big game hunting is prohibited on the Aldrich Easement until 2020. Logging can occur on the easements. Trucks and other logging equipment may be encountered on access roads and in other areas. Use caution and yield the way to logging equipment.
