Trail Overview

In Bigelow Hollow State Park, five trails (along with the Nipmuck Trail) are maintained by CFPA. These are the Mashapaug Pond View Trail, the Ridge Trail, Bigelow Pond Loop Trail, Breakview Pond Loop Trail, and the East Ridge Trail. These trails wind through the undeveloped northeastern corner of the State and feature beautiful ponds and deep, rugged forests.

Our Trail Partners

CFPA acknowledges we are on the traditional lands of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, the Mohegans, the Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke, Golden Hill Paugussett, Nipmuc, and Niantic peoples. We pay our respect to the Indigenous people who are no longer here due to colonization, forced relocation, disease, and warfare. We thank them for stewarding this land throughout generations. We recognize the continued presence of Indigenous people on this territory who have survived attempted genocide, and who still hold ties to the land spiritually and culturally. We shall be good stewards of the land we all call Quinnentucket, Connecticut.
