Owl’s Head Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide
"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."
