Aqua-Terra Wilderness Area

Formerly the site of the Aqua-Terra Sportsman's Club and Innsbruck USA Ski Area, Aqua-Terra Wilderness Area offers 466 acres of largely undeveloped natural settings. The  6-acre pond provides a secluded fishing experience and opportunities for wildlife-watching. Aqua-Terra Wilderness Area is also a participant in the Broome County Hiking Challenge Program.

The park is located on both sides of Maxian Road for two very different experiences. Visit the south side for a more challenging hike up the hill or visit the north side for an easier flatter hike near the pond.

As at all Broome County Parks' facilities, admission is free.

Visitors are required to be aware of and follow Parks' rules:

  • Dogs are permitted but must be kept on a leash no longer than 8-ft in length; owners must pick up after their dogs.
  • Motorized vehicles are not permitted on the trails. 
  • Camping is not permitted.
  • Fishing from shore is permitted; swimming, wading, and boats are not permitted.

For more information, call 607.778.2193.
