The Saugatuck Trail is located within the 15,000-acre Centennial Watershed State Forest and closely parallels its namesake, the Saugatuck Reservoir. The trail offers a variety of terrain, rock outcroppings, vernal pools, wetlands, streams, and spectacular vistas of the reservoir. The trail also connects to the blue-blazed Aspetuck Trail offering longer-distance hiking opportunities.
Because the trail is located within watershed lands, recreational use is regulated by the Connecticut Department of Public Health. Please respect and obey all signs. The Centennial Watershed Forest is managed cooperatively by the CT DEEP, Aquarion Water Company, and The Nature Conservancy.
