Mohegan State Forest Scotland
Mohegan State Forest consists of over 700 acres in two parcels. The largest parcel is located in Scotland with smaller pieces in Sprague. The first 300 acres of the forest was donated to the State in 1960 for the purpose of demonstrating good forest management. When the property was in private hands, timber harvesting and management had occurred, and management has continued under State ownership. The main access road is constructed of gravel. It was renovated in 1988 to provide improved access for commercial timber harvesting, homeowners with permits for gathering firewood and recreational hunting and hiking. Mohegan State Forest is not developed for recreation but is still a beautiful woodland. Pheasant are sometimes stocked and hunting is permitted. There are two trails for hiking.
