Stoney Demonstration Forest consists of 317.87 acres of hardwood forest located on the north side of Nova Scotia Road between Tower Road and the Cullum Road in the Creswell area of Harford County, Maryland. It was acquired by the State of Maryland on November 25, 1981. The property is the remnant of the once-extensive timberlands (2,000 acres) owned by Mr. Sydney Peverly.

Today the forest serves as an educational resource where a variety of silvicultural practices, forest best management practices and wildlife habitat management practices are implemented. Stoney Demonstration Forest is Trash Free. Read more about Leave No Trace. No motorized vehicles are allowed, and horseback riding is prohibited.
