About Stafford Hill Wildlife Management Area
Stafford Hill Wildlife Management Area consists predominantly of old pastureland with transitional hardwood forest. Historically, the area was an old farm and still contains numerous apple trees throughout as well as agricultural fields which are currently being farmed on Jenks Road. A mixed northern hardwood and softwood forest covers the majority of the upland areas, but there are some steeply sloping fields. Slopes vary from gentle to steep, but there are some nearly flat hilltop areas, as well as a parcel of river bottomland on the South Branch of the Hoosac River accessed from North State Road in Cheshire. The Ashuwillticook Rail Trail runs through the western parcel of the WMA. Elevation ranges from 950 to 1,930 feet.

There are three parking areas on Stafford Hill Road in Cheshire: one on the northern parcel and two on the southern parcel. There is a town pull-off on Wells Road on the western parcel.
