Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Howland Island is part of the Northern Montezuma Wildlife Management Area and is managed by DEC. It was formed in the early 1900s with the building of the Barge Canal. In some portions the Barge Canal uses the Seneca River basin, but here the canal channel was cut across the southern section of a big loop in the river. The island is accessed only by pedestrian bridges. It is maintained for waterfowl nesting habitat and is networked with trails for hiking and bicycling. You can land anywhere on the island for a break or picnic."
