Holbrook State Park

Sheffield; Caledonia County
307 Acres

 

General Description:
All of Perry Holbrook Memorial State Park was deeded to the state in 1991 by Clair and Frances Holbrook. The park was named in honor of Mr. Holbrook’s late son Perry who grew up exploring the area.

Unique Features:
Two ponds and a series of cliffs combine to create unique, contemplative scenery and natural communities.

Recreation Overview:
The scenery of Perry Holbrook Memorial State Park provides ample opportunity for contemplative outdoor recreation. A foot trail travels from the woods road, along the north shore of Round Pond, up to the north shore of Long Pond and then to a look-out above Long Pond. It continues up to the high point of the property. The two ponds are often accessed for fishing and picnicking. Dispersed recreation, including hunting and trapping, is allowed off the trails.
Perry Holbrook Memorial State Park is accessed through a right-of-way off of Route 122. A small grassy parking area borders state land on the westernmost corner of the parcel.

Planning Overview: 
The long range management plan for Perry Holbrook Memorial State Park is written through The Heights Management Unit planning process. The planning process is ongoing.
