Peoples State Forest Professional Review and Guide
"This 3,000-acre forest, purchased by public subscription in the 1920s, stretches east from the West Branch Farmington River in northwest Connecticut.
It contains a diverse forest with stately trees, one of the best overlooks in the state, and “Barkhamsted Lighthouse,” a historic Indian settlement. A splendid system of interlocking trails explores this forest of the people, by the people, and for the people. The described loop incorporates several of the trails."
--George and Rhonda Ostertag, Hiking Connecticut and Rhode Island (Falcon Guides).
Great hike with lots of terrain changes, little traffic and some stunning views.
