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.

It was a beautiful place, very quiet, huge and plenty of trails to choose from. I suggest taking a trail map with you, we chose the orange and blue trail which was nice but there were forks in the path that were not marked so it got a little confusing. Very buggy so bring bug spray, the nature aspect was awesome, feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, plan on paying to get into the state park, $9 for CT residents.

Love the park, love the trails, hate the bugs!

Nice half-day loop. Has a good balance of flat walking and uphill hiking. Well maintained though its easy to windup off the trail and on one of the access roads. Overall a great place to go when you want to stay local.

Amazing swimming holes and I always can find a private spot

My favorite place and its in my backyard

Went in early winter, beautiful! The rocks on the trail can get a bit slippery. Definitely coming back in the warmer months.

a beautiful day with my dog :) a little muddy and a little bit of water to cross . I'm glad some of it was frozen

Great winter hike!

Hot but good hike.
