Welcome, hikers...!

Malcolm headed up Crow HillThe Midstate Trail Committee supports the Midstate Trail as a walking trail. We solicit permission from land owners to use it for walking. We have no rights other than those given us by private landowners or public land managers to use the path for walking. As a committee, we have no position on other uses for the trail, except as they may interfere with its use as a walking trail, or might jeopardize our agreements with property owners. The Committee  has NO involvement with the buildings or structures along the trail. Contact Massachusetts DCR or Westminster Conservation Commission for info regarding the shelters. Thank You.

   Some areas on the Midstate Trail are open to hunting during various statewide hunting seasons...

  While some species can be taken year round, most hunting activity occurs between October 1st through February 29 when some of the trail and lands it crosses are open to hunting. Be safe by being prepared. Remember to wear blaze orange and leave your pet at home. There is No Hunting in Massachusetts on Sunday. Click Here to learn about Massachusetts Fish and Wildlife Laws.
