Site Description

The Cheney Ponds Parcel is predominantly a young, even aged hardwood mix of maple, cherry and yellow birch. The central portion of the land has numerous beaver ponds around which the forest is dominated by spruce and fir. The western third of the property is flat with several large clearings. The grade gradually increases as the property goes east. The principal ATV trail through the land crosses between two ponds on the western property boundary then heads east and ends at the border with New York State land. From here it is a quarter mile hike down to the East Branch of the St. Regis River.

There are 8 distinct beaver ponds on the central portion of the property, the largest of which is approximately 4 acres. The ponds are generally surrounded by young spruce and fir. A network of ATV trails runs throughout the property with spurs leading to the largest of the ponds.
