Bald Hill

 Bald Hill is the only area in the Cayuga Lake Basin where mountain laurel (Kalmia latifolia) is found abundantly. This natural area is part of a very large, contiguous forested area in the southeastern part of Tompkins County that includes Shindagin Hollow State Forest. The Palmer-Adams Preserve is named to honor the long involvement of Charles Palmer and Armand Adams in natural history and environmental education.
