The Garrison School Forest

As part of our campus, the Garrison School includes a massive School Forest, consisting of 181 acres located directly adjacent to the main building. The forest, located in the area bounded by Routes 9D and 9, and Route 403 and Snake Hill Road, was donated to the District in the early 1960s for educational purposes and for the enjoyment of the community. A volunteer School Forest Committee watches over the Forest and reports to the Board of Education.

Please take a moment to review the forest rules, then download our trail map, and then enjoy a hike in the Forest!
