Lower Paugusett State Forest Professional Review and Guide

"Enjoy this walk through the hemlocks along the Housatonic River. There are many hikes that will take you on a walk along a flowing stream. However, there aren’t too many where you get to enjoy the undeveloped shoreline of a major river, without even picnic groves or baseball fields.

Four streams north of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, merge into the Housatonic River. By the time it reaches the Connecticut border, it becomes the second longest river in southern New England after the Connecticut, with its watershed taking in some portions of Columbia and Dutchess counties in neighboring New York."
