I made it a mile into the forest off of route 44 when I came across a summer camp counselor who said I couldn't continue on the Natchmaug trail because it went through the camp property and I had to turn around. I don't think she had the authority to police the trail, anyone else have this issue? I drove an hour to hike 2 miles. I went across 44 to continue the trail and it was overgrown and thorny.

This is a gentle sloping run of the Natchaug Trail emptying into the Nipmuck. There is a campsite at the transition between trails and camping is available year-round. From camp it is a gentle downhill hike out to Perry Hill Rd.
