In southeastern Massachusetts, directly adjacent to both Connecticut and Rhode Island, 4,600-acre Douglas State Forest offers pleasant and diverse woodlands, a hidden trail shelter, and a back-country site where Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island intersect. A portion of this loop hike travels along Midstate Trail, a 95-mile long-distance route spanning central Massachusetts. This is one of Midstate Trail’s more remote and peaceful sections.
