Zoar Valley

Ice climbing at Zoar Valley Multiple Use Area has been safely and responsibly done for over 30 years. The Western New York Access Coalition (WNYAccess) is dedicated to preserving this enjoyable winter activity for current and future ice climbers. Ice climbing is currently not prohibited at Zoar Valley, but there is a pending new unit management plan being developed by the NYSDEC and WNYAccess is actively communicating with the acting DEC forester for Zoar Valley about the future of ice climbing. At this time, ice climbing will not be prohibited in the new unit management plan and WNYAccess will continue to stay in contact with the NYSDEC regarding the future of ice climbing in Zoar Valley MUA.
