The 518-acre Hand Hollow State Forest was established in 2014. Along with the wooded property and some open brush land, there is a 10-acre lake on the southern portion of the property called Spiegelberg Lake. The lake shore is shared with the 433-acre Hand Hollow Conservation Area, owned by the Columbia Land Conservancy (leaves DEC website). Recreational activities like hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and wildlife observation are allowed throughout the property.

This is a short but solid workout ... this is almost 100% uphill all the way to the lake; the lake shore is shared with the Hand Hallow Conservation Area and there are other trails up there that I would very much like to explore but didn't get time to. I will return in the future.
