This 2660 acre forest offers visitors a natural diversity of flora and fauna accented with historically significant contributions of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).
The focal point of the forest is located at 205 Westboro Road in Upton, where visitor parking, the main trail head and park information is available. One has the opportunity to survey the grounds and exterior of a number of CCC structures located at this site.
Upton State Forest is a Carry-In Carry-Out facility, so we ask visitors to take home all their trash. While the forest is unstaffed, it is open to the public year-round at no charge.
Trail users can enjoy numerous recreational opportunities for hiking, casual walking, horse back riding, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. Off Highway Vehicles (OHV's) are prohibited at the forest.
Upton State Forest is part of the Miscoe, Warren, Whitehall Watershed Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC).
