Shenipsit State Forest, Ellington Reviews
Great place to come hike or just drive up the mountain for the view/ride. I love coming here, this is one of my favorite places to come and relax when I'm in the area. There are picnic tables at the top of the mountain to sit and eat or just hang out (which it seems like a lot of kids do because of the many drawings/writings on the tables). There are trails but I haven't gone down many of them, I like riding up the dirt road from across the street because it's a great surface for my dirt tires. I wish that the picnic tables were stained with something that would make it impossible for people to ruin but I guess that's just how it is, some people don't appreciate what we have but I'm telling you it's worth checking out!!!
Very nice place to hike and picnic. Great views of the surrounding hills. Wish the tower was open for even better viewing.
Nice area with some great hiking trails and a few nicely graded dirt roads to explore. Unfortunately the tower on Soapstone mountain is closed but there are a few nice picture areas with great views to the east.
Shenipsit State Forrest , Soapstone Mountain and the Valley Falls Trail Way are excellent places for recreation and exercise. When I'm in Connecticut this is where I head to for exercise and relaxation.
I flew over this place on my way home from Florida and Google asked me to leave a review. So here ya go! I have been here before and it's a nice hike with great views.
