Trails are not marked but there are several trails to follow on the terra side. it is VERY steep. The entrance to the aqua side was overrun with trash. There is a parking area on the terra sure if you drive down a little ways past the park sign.

Great pond for the dogs to swim in! Trails could be marked a little better and a little muddy...but super beautiful and low trafficked!

Hiked in April as part of the Broome County Dozen challenge. it was SUPER muddy. to the point where we were sinking in up to our shins. Trail up the mountain to the ski slope area wasn't as bad and easy to follow.

It’s a very pretty area and doing both sides of Maxian Road makes for a nice hike. The ski slope area is a great workout with a decent hill climb. The pond side can get sloppy during wet weather and it was difficult to know where we were. The trails aren’t well marked.

Many intertwining trails! Easy to get lost without AllTrails to track.

We took three different paths to find them just end and get all over grown. It’s too bad cause it’s really a nice area. We were really hoping to take a path all the way around the pond. Wish Broome county would maintain the parks better.

This was surprisingly nice. I expected more mud, and there was some, but not bad. The ski slope has a lot of different options for going up - I suggest the gravel road to the right. We came down the steeper part and even though it was short, poles helped a lot. Hike around the pond was really pretty too! I’d come back and do it again.

"Aqua" side, across the road from the sign, was an unmarked trail around a pretty pond. Just ok. LOTS of random trails off the main loop, so keep to the pond trail. Muddy spots and Posted signs help prevent wandering. "Terra" side, on the same side as the BC park sign, was more of a challenge and more interesting. Along the steep Tbar trail there were old footings and pipes for the ski hill. Again unmarked, but any trail will lead you up, then down. We chose the wide path to the right to go up, but the Tbar going down.

Walked the whole trail. I wouldn't recommend the pond trail. It's all mud. And I'm pretty sure I did the hill trail backwards because coming down was pretty intense.

You need mud boots for this hike! Excellent hill climbing trails. Not sure where the actual trail is there are several groomed trails we just followed them. No trail markers on the trees.

I do this hike a lot for conditioning. Very steep but still a great hike. The pond side is very easy though, great views as well.

Wildly steep but the view of the hill to come keeps you motivated, yearning to reach the top.

Very tranquil, many beautiful fungi, birds, and moths. Had to cross a brook near the parking lot, waded barefoot and then put my shoes back on. Because the lower meadow was flooded there were no ATVs, which (no offense) was fine with me. Trails were not marked except at the top of the hill, so keep the GPS going so you don't get lost.

Great sweat up the hill. No scenic hot spots, but the flowers were pretty before the steep hike up. Some hikes I can take the jogger stroller for my toddler and wear it like a backpack, (quite comfortably actually) but this is NOT one of them. We are adventurous enough to take out toddler and older son also. Next time I will wear my soccer cleats for better footing up the steep hill.
