The East Branch of the AuSable River borders the property for 1/4 mile. A New York State Scenic River Corridor, the river flats, the trees along the river bank and the Jay Wilderness Range of mountains in the distance combine to make an inspiring backdrop.
THE RIVER is a fine spot for picnics, walks and wading or floating down to the covered bridge (shallow rubber craft for most seasons). In the spring when there's lots of water serious kayakers make the run from Keene.
AuSable River Walk. 1/4 mile. Meadows, river shoals, valley views. Find "Trailhead" at corner of Stonehouse Road and Route 9N. Cross Route 9N and walk South along Route 9N 600ft. to highway drainage ditch that cuts across the river flats. Turn into field and walk down 100ft. to end of ditch. Views of river shoals, plus ice jams, wild flowers, ducks and blue heron ( season dependent). Follow along river bank North to "Country Wedding Corner" and follow lot line back to starting point.
THE PINE FOREST on the hill behind the house makes for
cool walks in Summer. Find the remains of three spring
houses that served years ago the old schoolhouse on
Stonehouse Road and the Stone House itself. Nice views of farm from open portions of the field up above the old apple tree in the midle of the field. Picnic spot.

Please Rate Our Fourpeaks Website. Whether you're an experienced webmaster or just a novice surfer, you may have feedback or suggestions to help us improve. We well remember the visitor who complained about the unpleasant glare from the HTML default royal blue links. That lead us to entirely revamp our background and link colors, making them softer, more eye pleasing. And the Florida expert who warned us about frustrating visitors with blind links. We followed his advice and now carefully identify links so visitors know before they "click" exactly where they're clicking to. Your comments or suggestions will be equally appreciated.
