Nehantic State Forest

3.89 miles   2.1 mph same kind of hike as the last one, as in moderate elevation changes; from maybe 150 feet to almost 500 feet and back. this was kind of a scruffy little state forest with a nice up and down loop and some decent views at the top and very well-marked trails. […]
