Owl's Head Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Pass through lovely fern meadows on your way to the open granite summit and unique stone octagon shelter of Owl’s Head."

"Groton State Forest’s 25,000 acres encompass mountains and lakes, forests and bogs. The area draws not only hikers but also boaters, fishermen, campers, cross-country skiers, and hunters.

It owes much of its current appearance to the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps. Nearly seventy-five years ago, this group reforested areas burned by fires, built forest roads, and erected many of the lean-tos and other structures that still stand today."
