Cram Hill Forest is a recreational property with good access from a well-maintained Class III road. The property is located on a short section of Class IV road that runs along its eastern boundary. An open field directly on the road frontage could easily support a camp with good views found looking southwest. This is an off-grid parcel, and with the southern exposure would be ideal for solar power.
This high-elevation property (1800'ASL) is located in Roxbury, Vermont on Cram Hill Road, off Route 12A. It's about 13 miles to Warren and Northfield, Vermont, with Randolph, Vermont, the closest large town with good amenities 10 miles south. This forest is accessed from town-maintained Cram Hill Road (Class III) and then Upper Fisher Road (Class IV), which is also the parcel's eastern boundary.
A large clearing on the side of Fisher Road, leftover from past logging on the property, would be ideal for an off-grid camp with views. This is the best place to park as Fisher Road turns into a trail just after this clearing. The property is three hours from Boston and Montreal, Canada, and New York City is six hours south. Sugarbush Ski Resort is 13 miles away in Warren and is accessed from Roxbury Gap. Montpelier is a half-hour north, and Burlington is just over an hour away.
This rugged but beautiful central Vermont location is known for hiking, skiing, fishing, and hunting in the National Forest and White River that surround the property.
This property is accessed from Route 12A to Cram Hill Road and then Fisher Road in Roxbury, Vermont. Fisher Road is Class IV and turns into a Town Trail at the clearing, which is the access to the forest. You can park at the field and walk onto the property at that point. Or you could walk the length of Fisher Road with the property on the right side of the road. The boundaries are easy to find as they are marked with red blazes and small yellow tags that say Montgomery Timber Company.
Cram Hill Forest is an opportunity to purchase 84 acres of land that has traditionally been part of a larger wood-lot parcel. The property has old trails left over from past logging, making it easy to walk through the woods. These trails could be re-opened to allow for ATV or snowmobile use as well as good foot transportation throughout the parcel.
There would be very good hunting found in this high-elevation forest with deer, bear and game bird habitats present. A combination of maples, oaks, and fir are found in the woods and would provide good forage for these animals. The forest includes the top of Cram Hill at 1800 feet, and there are views seen through the trees in three directions.
A large clearing on the road frontage is the obvious place to build an off-grid camp or house, and the views are to the southwest making solar possible. The access to the property is very good, and equipment and materials to build a homestead would be easy to bring in along the well-maintained roads.
