Bigelow Hollow State Park is within the Nipmuck State Forest. There are three large ponds and miles of blazed trails accessible to non motorized vehicles. Marked trails lead from Bigelow Hollow to the Breakneck area. Hikers should be prepared to walk at least 6 miles to complete a loop around Breakneck. There are no marked trails to Briggs pond. This extensive trail system is maintained in cooperation with the Connecticut Forest and Park Association, which provides volunteer assistance.
