The Otter Slide Forest is a 116 +- acre wooded parcel located in the town of Hudson, ME. This property fronts on Route 221 (Hudson Road) and extends back to a brook where it has approximately 900 feet of water frontage on Beaver Meadow Brook. The property lends itself well as a hunting and recreational parcel. The water feature in the back provides privacy and the abutting properties are large wooded tracks. The property was logged over about 70% of its acreage in 2000 and is growing back very well. The back 30% of the acreage has a good mix of trees. Popple, fir, maple, birch and pine were observed in good numbers throughout the acreage on a recent visit to the property. There are several locations that would make good building sites for either a residential home, or a recreational cabin. The ITS snowmobile trail is located a short distance from the property, so accessing it for winter fun is easy.
The water features on the property had beaver, otter and mink sign readily seen in the snow. Snowshoe hare tracks were abundant throughout the property. All of Maines wildlife can be found here. Bear, deer, moose, turkey, coyote and more make this property their home. A few apple trees on the road side of the property have frequent visits from bear, deer, and turkeys. The wood harvest makes the property more desirable to game animals, as younger forest abutting mature trees provides food and shelter for animals. This is an excellent mix of wildlife habitat.
