Battenkill / Goose Egg State Forests

The Battenkill State Forest and Goose Egg State Forest are back to back and take up 983 acres combined. There is a small, grassy parking area on RT 313, just east of Eagleville Rd. The Folding Rock trail goes through the Battenkill State Forest, crosses briefly into the Goose Egg State Forest and then back where it ends at the southern edge. Round trip is a little over 5 miles and there is an ascent of 1260 feet.

The trail goes around a locked gate and follows a hedgerow on the edge of a field. It crosses a small stream and enters a predominately deciduous forest. It ascends quite steeply and then follows along the Snake Ridge. At the end of the trail there is an opening in the trees which gives views of the Battenkill River Valley
