Check out our new adventure, hiking Cockaponset State Forest! Having finished hiking the 57-mile Mattabesett Trail, we decide to tackle the trails at Cockaponset State Forest. At more than 16,000 acres, it is the second largest state forest, located in both Middlesex and New Haven counties. It is named for a Native American chief buried in Haddam. There purport to be more than 100 miles of hiking trails, although only 20 miles are officially marked by the state.
Mattabesett Trail Blog: From April 23, 2010 to October 24, 2011, Cherry Czuba and I hiked the 57-mile long Mattabesett Trail. On November 30, 2011, we celebrated the receipt of our Connecticut Forest and Park Association patches with a dinner attended by a group of friends and family.
