Westfield Wild and Scenic River

The Westfield Wild and Scenic River was originally designated on November 2, 1993 with many tributaries being added on September 28, 2004. Of the 78.1 miles designated, 2.6 are considered ‘Wild’, with 42.9 being ‘Scenic’, and 32.6 designated as ‘Recreational’. The watershed is home to several endangered species and is also home to the largest roadless wilderness area in the state. The river offers critical habitat for wildlife and waterfowl, and is one of the best cold water fisheries in the region. From rich history to remarkable recreation, we’re excited to celebrate 27 years of the Wild and Scenic Westfield!
