McKinstry Brook Wildlife Management Area

McKinstry Brook Wildlife Management Area  is a 226-acre wildlife management area is owned by the MA State Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, so there are no maintained trails; however it is an easy hike through the woods. The area experienced severe blowdowns & damage in a 2011 tornado. As a result, the area can no longer be traversed from end-to-end.  Parking is available at two trailheads:  Plimpton Street, for the southern section, and Pleasant Street, opposite the airport, for the northern section. No fee.
