DEC Permit

If you intend to hike on property managed by the DEC (New York State Department of Environmental Conservation) you should apply for an access permit. IT IS FREE! To do so makes sense for a number of reasons. When you apply you are furnished with a lot of information from the DEC. Where the protected lands are, where to park, when and where there is hunting and any regulations you need to be aware of. A LARGE NUMBER OF NEW APPLICATIONS WILL LET THE STATE KNOW THAT THERE IS A GROWING INTEREST IN THESE LANDS. Send your request for an access permit to:

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation

Sporting License Office
SUNY, Building 40
Stony Brook, NY 11

If you have the time you might find a visit to the building to be worth while. When I visited  Bldg. 40 last summer I found an extravaganza of pamphlets on a diverse range of subjects
