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.
