Meshomasic State Forest

6 12 2020

As the oldest state forest in New England, this area seemed a priority to visit. The entrance off Clark Hill Road was not marked by name, although the state forest boundary markers were apparent. The forest access road crossed the Shenipsit blue-blazed trail, which I took up to the Great Hill lookout.

The view of Great Hill Pond and the Connecticut River from the top of Great Hill were extraordinary.

Turkey vultures soared overhead on the perfect autumn day I visited.
