Friends of Great Bear is made up of residents of Oswego County, interested in the conservation and protection of the Great Bear Recreation Area. This unique area is owned by the City of Fulton and the Town of Volney. A diversity of flora and fauna, varying terrain and the Oswego River and Oswego Canal make Great Bear a great place for non-motorized recreation such as hiking, mountain biking and cross-country skiing.
Great Bear is a great place to hike, walk the dog, ride a mountain bike. In the winter you can ski or snowshoe. Trails are all "single track" wooded trails. You can also walk down the Oswego River to swim or fish.
In cooperation with the City of Fulton, Town of Volney and private land owners, we are advocates for the preservation and protection of this natural environment, so that the public may share and make use of the property wisely as a recreational resource. With help from local businesses.
Great Bear is an offical walk of the Great Lakes Seaway Trail Volkssport Association.
The Great Bear property is located between Fulton and Phoenix New York on Route 57. Parking and the entrance to Great Bear are at Route 57 and Great Bear Road.
Please remember not to leave valuables in your vehicle.
