In spring and summer, this quiet trail is lush with plants and willowy trees, where little frogs and lizards hide out. The eight-mile route ends at small pond, where hikers can cool off.

Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Take a walk on the trail, located at Casimir Pulaski Memorial State Park and George Washington Memorial State Forest. The park is small, but the state forest is in excess of 4,000 acres nestled against the Connecticut border.
  • The trail is mostly level and it passes through wetlands. Bordered with the Atlantic white cedar the trail makes a big loop, but you can shortcut the loop as well. Bowdish Reservoir is the watery centerpiece, and smaller ponds add to the wildlife possibilities. Unusual peak islands support black spruce and bog plants.
  • The Walkabout Trail is the backbone of an 11-mile network of paths open to hikers and mountain bikers. Consider using the Bowdish Lake camping area as a base for exploring the path. It has 45 shaded campsites with water spigots and restrooms.
