Northern Montezuma Wildlife Management Area at over 8,200 acres, has many activities available including bird watching, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, hunting, fishing and trapping.  Two of the better known hiking destinations on the WMA include Howland Island with over 17 miles of graveled roads, and the Montezuma Audubon Center.  

Several other
 smaller trails exist throughout the WMA, and great wildlife viewing opportunities can be found at Guy Baldassarre Marsh, Marten's Tract, Malone Marsh and others.
This area is part of the nearly 50,000 acre Montezuma Wetlands Complex, which includes the federally-owned Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge, state owned Northern Montezuma Wildlife Management Area (including the former Howland Island WMA), land owned by The Nature Conservancy and private lands. 

From Rochester or Syracuse, take the NYS Thruway to the Waterloo exit (exit 41). Go north on NY 414 to Clyde, than east on NY 31 to Savannah. State lands are along NY 89 north of Savannah and Savannah-Spring Lake Road east of Savannah. Howland Island can be accessed in Savannah on the west side and from Port Byron on the east side.
