Fall hunting season is underway for hunters registered and authorized by GMF as wildlife monitors, keeping the deer population balanced.

Please stay on recreational trails and wear blaze orange or other bright colors and adhere to the GMF rule of keeping your dog on a leash when visiting.

During that time, GMF will be closed for recreational use Monday through Saturday from November 17 to December 7, 2021. The forest is open for recreational activities on Sundays during that time period. Those days are November 21, 28, and December 5. If you have any questions please contact the Forest Manager at 860-542-5422 or jody@greatmountainforest.org.
