Whipple Hollow Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is in the towns of Pittsford and West Rutland. Public access to the WMA is from the Bristol Road.
The major watercourse on Whipple Hollow WMA is the Castleton River, which drains the entire area and flows to the south. Steep west-facing slopes fall from an elevation of 1,200 feet to 500 feet at the property’s southwestern boundary, which is the centerline of the Castleton River. Hardwoods, mostly oak, and oak/hickory forest and a lesser amount of northern hardwoods cover most of the WMA. Areas of white pine and hemlock and old fields make up the rest of the acreage.
Recreation on the WMA is dominated by dispersed fish and wildlife-based activities including hunting, fishing and trapping as well as wildlife viewing and hiking/walking. A section of snowmobile trail, maintained by the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST), crosses the WMA.
