Woodbury Mountain Wilderness Preserve, owned by Northeast Wilderness Trust, is one of Vermont’s newest Wildlands and the largest nongovernmental wilderness in Vermont at over 6,000 acres. It lies in a critical wildlife linkage and provides safe movement for bears, fishers, bobcat, and moose. A mere half-hour drive from the state capital of Montpelier, it provides opportunities for hiking, nature study, and hunting.
