Upton State Forest

Upton State Forest Professional Review and Guide

"Well-marked dirt trails lead you past lady’s slipper flowers and lichen-crusted boulders
to Dean Pond, a great place to stop for lunch. Return to your car on the Mammoth
Rock Trail, scrambling between more boulders as you pass through the flat, thickly
wooded forest. Hunting is permitted here in season, so take care if you’re hiking here
in the fall."

What a treat well groomed and wide enough for Cross Country and Snoe Shoes. We were snow shoeing and were pretty much bye our selves all morning. Enough room for the dog to romp and we went on a Sunday and were all alone on Whispering Cave Trail which was a wonderful trek. We went reverse of how the map depicts so we were at the Pond end to start which was completly froze and started up from that side. Saw a few fresh deer tracks but did not see a one. It was a Heart pumper and rather steep but it is a place I will return to in the summer. I strongly reccomend it and the trails are easy to follow but only names at the junctions and no arrows or distances so depending on your sence of direction be carefull on the side trails which are narrow, and paint marked which is fadeing. You can get turned around easy but this is a nice place.
