Southeastern Massachusetts Bioreserve, Fall River MA 02790
Nestled between Watuppa Pond and the Copicut Reservoir, the Southeastern Massachusetts Bioreserve is a unique conglomeration of preserved and conserved land stewarded by multiple public and private agencies. Started in 2002, it now includes over 14,000 acres of conservation land.
Oddly enough, the PDF map of area is not officially posted (at least as best as I can tell as of today). My KMZ map is from a scan of the map I found on this forum:
See version history below for more information.

This KMZ map is set to Draw Order 32 so it will show 'beneath' your primary map on your Garmin KMZ-compatible GPS.
Note that due to the wide coverage area of this map, it is actually 4 tiles. Keep that in mind when placing this on your Garmin GPSr - even though this is one KMZ, the number of tiles is limited to 100 across all the KMZ files loaded on most Garmin GPSr models (500 tiles if you have a Garmin Montana or Oregon 600 series).
The images below are all from a Garmin GPSMAP 78sc. The image on the left is with no other maps displayed. The image on the right has the Garmin 24K NE series TOPO maps displayed.

This should be the area available for hiking or other recreation, but it will also include any portion of water bodies, marshes, swamps, etc. within the boundaries of the properties on the KMZ. It would also include inaccessible conservation land within the boundaries, such as a buffer zone of "Do not enter" land around a reservoir.
