Baker School House State Forest (Cortland #12) encompasses 1,276 acres and is located in the towns of Freetown and Solon in the middle of Cortland County. Its primitive nature makes it ideal for activities such as hiking, hunting, trapping, bird watching, nature observation, and informal camping. Baker School House State Forest has a section of the Finger Lakes Trail System running through it. A Public Forest Access Road provides an easy avenue of approach into the northern section of the forest. There are currently no other designated trails within the forest, however, informal hiking, horseback riding and snowshoeing are welcome.
