Heads-up on Hunting 
The Massachusetts primitive arms deer hunting season is December 16th through 31st (excluding Sundays). Although gun hunting is rarely allowed on Greenbelt Reservations, we recommend you wear orange or other bright colors when visiting Massachusetts trails - Greenbelt's or others - during hunting season.
