About Worcester Woods Wildlife Management Area
Worcester Woods Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is located in the central Vermont town of Worcester. It is 184 acres in size, is owned by the State of Vermont, and is managed by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. Access to the WMA can be difficult as the WMA is essentially land-locked; however, a narrow, steep right-of-way for foot travel only provides access easterly from Route 12. The right-of-way begins at an informal pull-off on the east side of Worcester Woods Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is located in the central Vermont town of Worcester. It is 184 acres in size, is owned by the State of Vermont, and is managed by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. Access to the WMA can be difficult as the WMA is essentially land-locked; however, a narrow, steep right-of-way for foot travel only provides access easterly from Route 12. The right-of-way begins at an informal pull-off on the east side of Route 12, north of the first bridge over the North Branch of the Winooski River upstream of Hancock Brook.

The WMA lies within the watershed of the North Branch of the Winooski River, sandwiched between the North Branch of the River and Worcester Pond. The aspect is generally southwesterly, with elevations ranging from 1,300 feet in the northeast corner to 900 feet in the southwest corner. The WMA is completely forested with a mix of red and sugar maple, yellow birch, beech, hemlock, balsam fir, and red spruce.

There are several small, intermittent streams that flow north to south and exit the WMA in the southwest corner, eventually emptying into the North Branch.
