Directions to the Arnot
Boundaries are marked clearly with red painted blaze marks and corner posts. In addition, the interior of the forest is marked with a grid system that locates 37 individual "lots". Corners of the lots are marked by red painted posts with metal tags that identify the corner (for example "Lot 33NY"). By referring to the enclosed map you can easily locate your exact position at any lot corner.
It is suggested you carry the map, a compass, and a topo map (Alpine, NY) while visiting the Arnot.
