Breakneck Pond Professional Review and Guide
"Tucked away on the northern border of Connecticut, Breakneck Pond is surrounded by a 9000-acre conservation area comprised of Bigelow Hollow State Park and adjacent Nipmuck State Forest. In Algonquin, Nipmuck describes a land “abounding in small ponds and streams.” Aptly named, this thickly forested region is also dissected by a series of long, narrow ridges decorated with lichen-draped boulders, carpets of fern fronds, and the gnarled limbs of prolific mountain laurels. One of eastern Connecticut’s largest undeveloped spaces, the area offers many trails of various lengths. This recommended circuit is one of the longer options and provides an excellent overview of the region’s many natural features."
