About Misery Mountain WMA - Hancock Road

This parking area will bring visitors to Misery Mountain Wildlife Management Area, an undeveloped property in Western Massachusetts. Upon arriving at the shoulder of Hancock Road, visitors will see a dense hemlock forest. On a small public strip of this forest, visitors can climb uphill and enter the remainder of the WMA. Visitors should examine the property markers to ensure they are on public land.

Misery Mountain WMA is an expansive property in Hancock and Williamstown. The property travels alongside the Taconic Mountains, which follow the border between New York and Massachusetts. Due to its position in a low-traffic area, the secluded property is ideal for finding game during white-tailed deer season. The Taconic Crest Trail, spanning between Pittsfield State Forest and Southern Vermont, also travels through the forest and often provides scenic views of the surrounding Berkshires throughout the year.

Visitors will find this parking area on the shoulder of Route 43, across from Privacy Campground.
