About 385 million years ago, this property was part of a tropical region near the equator on the edge of the Devonian Sea. Today, the town of Gilboa is part of the Catskill Region with beautiful forests and mountain vistas, though evidence of its geological history is sometimes revealed as it is in this surveyed 13.1+/- acre land parcel. Located on the side of Reed Hill, the land is wooded with easy access from the town-maintained road. The front of the land has a gentle slope, which then develops into a slope up the mountainside. The rugged terrain leads to an impressive rock ledge wall. Rock climbing anyone? This dramatic massive rock exposure carved out during the Devonian Period may even contain ancient fossils! Explore, camp, or potentially build on this land while enjoying the history and the recreational opportunities offered in the local area, including Mine Kill State Park and the Schoharie Reservoir for fishing and boating. Be sure to visit the Gilboa Fossils museum where you learn more about the town's geologic history and see the world's oldest forest fossils which were found in the nearby Schoharie Creek.
