“Established on abandoned agricultural land”

This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. Established on abandoned agricultural land, the 716-acre Kellogg Experimental Forest was established in 1932 and is known worldwide for research on tree breeding and genetics, planting techniques, and plantation establishment and management. Much of the research that developed the Spartan spruce, a hybrid that combines the color and drought resistance of a blue spruce and the softer needles and rapid growth rate of the white spruce, was done at the Kellogg Forest. The forest is open to the public for biking, hiking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing and also has several interpretive trails.

This place is open to the public, at least during daylight hours. Nice cross country ski loop when there's snow.
