The 38,488-acre Hoffman Notch Wilderness is part of the Adirondack Forest Preserve. The area is named for the "notch" or valley between the Blue Ridge Range, which includes Hoffman Mountain, and the Washburn Ridge. The area features ponds and streams for fishing and 15 miles of trails for hiking, snowshoeing and skiing. It also offers visitors solitude, as one of the less visited areas in the Adirondacks.
