Chiarella Forest Management Area
This 77-acre tract on Timberland Road was donated by the Chiarella family as a Forest Management Area and planted by the Department of Natural Resources in 1992. From the hiking trails that run throughout the property, visitors can see oak trees and young Norway pine, planted in 1989. At the parking area, look for a Byway interpretive panel. Paul Bunyan tells the story of this wooded legacy left for us to enjoy and nurture. You'll also see a trail map posted there for a glimpse of the leisurely walk ahead.
For interested bird watchers, this is a very nice place to see migrating birds in spring and fall. Check out Birds of the Byway where you can schedule personalized birding tours or learn more info from local birding expert, Judd Brink.
