Trail Overview

The John Muir Trail, located in Paugnut State Forest, ascends through the forest to a terrain of ledges and boulders. A short side trail takes hikers to the summit of Walnut Mountain. The Alain and May White Nature Trails in Sunny Brook State Park link to the John Muir Trail in Paugnut State Forest, and the Walcott Trail in Burr Pond State Park. Together this system of interconnected trails meanders for 11.5 miles over rolling, forested terrain.
