This hike takes you along the western shore of Lake Lillinonah for half of the route in the Upper Paugusett State Forest in Newtown. Here, rock outcroppings overlooking the lake are frequently used by nesting bald eagles and hawks. The trail then veers into a mix of evergreen and logged deciduous before connecting to a relatively flat and wide wood road lined with stonewalls on either side. As part of the Upper Paugussett trail system, the Lillinonah Trail gives you frequent lake views through the trees hugging the shore high above the water line. To reach this shoreline portion first, do not take the logging road behind the brown metal gate that is immediately apparent alongside the parking lot. Instead, walk back down the dirt road you just came in on for a few hundred feet and look for blue markings on the trees. As soon as you reach a red barn to your right, take a left and follow the Blue Trail down along a stone wall into the forest, leading you toward Lake Lillinonah, which is really a dammed-up portion of the Housatonic River.
