Just 10 minutes from downtown Corning, Bad Bear Hill comprises 992 acres of forest and a few small fields. The property also has almost a mile of shoreline on the Canisteo River, now protected to safeguard water quality and habitat. The land lies within a recognized wildlife corridor and is home to black bears and Bald Eagles. It is now conserved for the benefit of people and wildlife. The property boasts miles of trails. The FLLT intends to open Bad Bear Hill to the public for daytime use after first developing an interim management plan for the property.
