"Fun with the Family"

Crossed by the Appalachian Trail, the park has good hiking and cross-country skiing, but its highlight is Benedict Pond, one of the region’s best swimming holes. On a lazy summer day, the pond is dotted with boats and fishermen. Caution: This state forest was given the name Beartown for a reason!
