More about Rocky Point Pine Barrens State Forest
Last Updated: February 23, 2017
Quality Parks is pursuing a means to improve the steep eroding trail section, mentioned below. We need to get out in the field and take measurements and further document possible solutions. Also we're working on developing a history of our involvement in the Rocky Pine Pine Barrens State Forest.
Eastern Fire Road was reopened with bulldozer scraping, within the last year. A north eastern field is being managed by NYSDEC Wildlife to reopen a grassy area in preparation of a prescribed burn. The access trail from Parking Lot #18 to Paumanok Trail going north, has a steep eroding section which is not sustainable (see Trails, Greenways & Sustainability). Near the Rocky Point Pine Barrens State Forest sign is an illegal access point in need of closing off, as was done on the other side of the parking lot with a yellow gate.
