FWIW, I have included the Joint Base boundaries on my Map of the Pines (shown as a heavy dashed line). Could not find an official source for the boundary, so I used tax parcel data. There could be some errors, so caveat emptor, but I think it's reasonably accurate. Just don't blame me if you end up in the brig.I believe that is on the Joint Milatary base property.
The right of way is so close to a house that I"ll bet it's little used because people are hesitant. It at first appears part of their yard.Nice info.. I will check this out soon. And make some calls. Thanks. According to maps, the tank itself has had water continuously.
Yes, I've been on that road several times botanizing. That google mobile went through the gate that is usually closed. There is a gate right after that reservoir close to the road heading east.
I"m sorry, I did not see this post until now Critter. No, I did not try to drive in from Growers road until last night, and something is wrong. I found 2 signs that indicate there is an easement, but they don't match what I thought was the way in. Look at the 2 aerials below, one ifs from the state tax map and it seems to indicate an easement right next to the private property. Then, look at the 2007 aerial from boyd's maps site and you can clearly see there was a way in at one time. Now I find that this is ambiguous because the homeowner apparently put grass there and made it look like there is no way in. But, I find two easement signs on the north side (left side looking in) of the supposed easement road, so I"m wonder just what is going on. Something is fishy here, so I plan to go to the township. There needs to be a way in.So you turned left onto the dirt road from Cranberry Growers Road and was able to drive exactly how far in? You say there is a gate right past that reservoir. Just to clarify, there is technically only one "reservoir" which is actually called a "tank". That is the waterbody to the upper northeast of the preserve. The rest of the waterbodies are just abandoned bogs. A tank is the storage water so when they need to flood the bogs. Can we drive anywhere near this tank (reservoir)? Only reason is I am consumed with fishing some of the most remote ponds in the State. I apparently overlooked this by assuming it was, like nearby Brindle, on Base property and thus off limits. Thanks for your input.
