This 559 acre state forest, located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, is bisected by the 150 foot deep Balsam Creek valley. Balsam Creek and its tributary to the north, Cold Creek, are well known spring fed trout streams. The hardwood forests abound with valuable high quality hard maple and black cherry sawtimber and veneer. Wildlife found here includes white-tailed deer, black bear, and fur bearers including fisher, coyotes and mink. Briar Hill public forest access road provides 1.5 miles of gravel surface access for the public north from Fish Creek Road.
