Info: Another DEC management area with around 18 miles of trails, some truck trails and some walking trails – all in various stages of use, some may be hard to find or make out.
Directions/Location: From Watertown take Route 81 until you get to Exit 37, go through the village of Sandy Creek and then Lacona and find County Route 15. This is tricky so keep your eye on the road signs. Continue on CR15 for around 8 or 9 miles until you get to the junction of County Route 17, take a right. A very short distance down CR17 is Littlejohn Drive on the left with a DEC area sign. Go down Littlejohn Drive for around half a mile and look for a dirt road on the left with some DEC area signs and warnings. You can park near some Spruce trees.
There are multiple trails and entrances around the wildlife area, the Google Maps below will bring you to the general area.
