This forest provides a wide variety of recreational pursuits including, boating, swimming and fishing at Laurel Lake with its beautiful, brick-lined lakeshore, camping, picnicking, hunting, horseback riding and winter sports. The woodlands are interlaced by 8 miles of forest roads, and numerous trails lead to points of scenic interest.

Really nice hike with a few miles of flat/easy and about 1.5 miles more challenging. Terrific unexpected scenic overlook. Really interesting rocks and caves.

first hike here was a 75 degree February day. it was murky at parts, but totally enjoyable. The descent/ascent down and back to the cave was a bit tough for my 11 year old, but we made it. will be back!

The southern part of the loop (blue blazes) goes to the Hermit Cave and some other nice rock formations. The rest of the trail is a piece of the M&M Trail (Metacomet & Monadnock) with white blazes and has some great views. Especially nice in the fall.
