My grandson and I hiked the Nipmuck (Blue Trail), and the Yellow Trail today that led us around Mansfield Hollow Lake. The Boat launch area off of Basset Bridge Rd is a great place to park to start your hike. Maps of the area are easily found if you Google Mansfield Hollow State Park Trail Map. The trails themselves are well kept and very well marked, including signs with arrows for those easy to miss turns in the trail. It is a relatively easy hike that takes you around the lake through wooded areas. It is a great place to take the family for a picnic and then enjoy the trails and the lake. I enjoy the solitude of the woods. On this hike, we crossed roads, athletic fields, and then more roads. It is a nice hike that is best saved for the summer months or in the fall when the leaves are changing.

Hiked the Nipmuck and yellow trails around the upper and lower sections of lake. Very nice hike. Was a little disappointed that the trails didn't run closer to the water though. Well over a dozen miles of trails here. Great place to waste a day exploring!

Beautiful park with great trails and views of the lake. Red trail starts across the street from the main parking lot, and is a great loop back into the park. You do run into newly installed electrical lines where the trail is cleared in 2 spots. When you come out to the clearing a second time (you'll be facing Bassetts Bridge Rd, the receiving trail market is tough to pick up, but if you go to the right, you'll find it.
