      Connecticut Hill is the largest wildlife management area in the state, encompassing 11,645 acres. It is also one of the largest contiguous high elevation forests in the region and as such is recognized as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by the Audubon Society. Notable bird species seen here are the Northern Goshawk, American Woodcock, Red-shouldered Hawk, and numerous forest songbirds.

      Connecticut Hill is one of the largest parcels of protected public land found within the ambitious Emerald Necklace project. Spanning from the Finger Lakes National Forest in the west to Hammond Hill State Forest in the east, the Emerald Necklace proposes to link 50,000 acres of existing outdoor space into one contiguous greenbelt. It will protect the water quality for Cayuga Lake and the Susquehanna River, but will also eventually ensure that 80 miles of the FLT follow a continuous, scenic, and off-road route, rather than the segmented nature present today.

      Connective corridors are not just great for hikers, bikers, and skiers but they also protect the habitats of wide-roaming wildlife such as black bear and rare forest songbirds. It’s a priority project within New York State’s Open Space Plan and one that all outdoor enthusiasts can get behind.

      Mountain biking is prohibited along the FLT, but numerous forest roads provide an extensive biking trail network. Unlike state forests, which focus on recreation and forest management, the focus here is on wildlife and wildlife-related recreation. Similarly, unlike state forests where primitive camping is allowed without permit and with few limitations, camping within the wildlife management area is limited and by permit only.
