First off do not confuse this state park with Mohawk Ski Area, which does back up to the state forest, but is a completely different experience. Mohawk State Forest is a beautiful area with well-maintained roads, meandering trails and picnic areas. It is a wonderful location to Xcountry ski or snowshoe in winter. Make sure that if you take a... More

We visited Mohawk State Park to hike one of the trails they have knowing it is a smaller trail. We brought our dog along for the 1st time and wanted to see how she would do on the trails.

If you are in the Northwest Hills of CT and do not feel like traveling to the coast, this is one of the best places in the state to view the sunset! As there is a 360 degree view at the top, I would imagine it is also a good spot to view the sunrise.

I often travel on Route 4 and stop at Mohawk for a break and the views. Our town's Boy Scout Troop did a weekend campout and hike here. I missed it but they all enjoyed it. Great place to stop by and chill.

The quiet surroundings and natural beauty here make this a magnificent place for individuals and families to spend an afternoon. The bog, the tower, and the summit all provide great backdrops for pictures. We frequently take picnic lunches to Cunningham Tower for peaceful lunches filled with laughter.

We assumed that when in Connecticut we would easily pick up trail maps. No such luck and even the locals didn't seem to know. One local trying to be helpful showed me a yellowing map on his wall dated 1978. Maps to scale are like hens teeth in New England - frustrating when we could not get google maps because... More
