Pachaug State Forest in southeastern Connecticut is, unfortunately, not a well known place. This is a real shame because as the largest undeveloped open space in southern New England, with over 30,000 protected acres, it has much to offer those who enjoy and appreciate the natural world. With somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 miles of marked trails, you can literally go for miles through unbroken forests in this under appreciated preserve. Pachaug has some of the finest natural features and attributes you’ll find in the area. As you pass through its ever changing landscape, you’ll come to places you never imagine existed, like Mt. Misery and High Ledge, with their incomparable views of the local countryside. Whoever would have thought that southern New England had a gorge, tiny as it is, just south of Green Fall Pond? This is a place full of the kind of natural treasures and surprises that will no doubt keep you coming back.
