Just over the border in Connecticut is a quaint and small State Park used mostly for swimming. There is also a mile and a half red blazed loop trail that traverses throughout the park. It is a well blazed trail that gently climbs up and down rolling hills, follows the shore of the Quaddick Reservoir for a moment, and passes by Poor Farm Brook. There are many stone walls through the fern covered forest of towering pines. There are also many birds that could be heard here.
