Connecticut Hill is the largest Wildlife Management Area in New York State, totaling 11,045 acres. It's located 16 miles southwest of Ithaca and 1 mile northeast of Alpine, astride the Tompkins-Schuyler County lines. NY 13 provides access to the eastern side of the area.  A section of the Finger Lakes Trail / North Country National Scenic Trail passes through the WMA.

Connecticut Hill WMA is open to the public all year around and offers a wide variety of outdoor pursuits including hunting, fishing, trapping, nature study, bird watching, picnicking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The Finger Lakes Trail / North Country Trail crosses the management area and a shorter Department of Environmental Conservation Trail weaves through a white pine and hemlock forest.  There is also the Van Lone Hill Loop Trail and the Bob Cameron Loop Trail that are in this WMA.  Primitive camping is also very popular in this WMA.
