Shenipsit State Forest, Ellington Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very rocky broke an axle here on my hardtail. Awesome ride though still made it home.

  • Easy to get lost. But that's part of the experience!

  • Great place to visit, the trails are groomed, and the lookout tower oversees the entire Somers and Enfield area. On this visit the tower was closed due to repairs, but will hopefully be operational soon.

  • Beautiful local park. Great for hiking, waking, snowshoeing and the like. Unfortunately the tower is currently closed, but work is being made to rebuild it and improve the area as a whole.

  • Nice lake if you like nature and scenery.
