Mohawk State Forest - TRAIL

Mohawk State Forest - Trail, Cornwall, Connecticut

Mostly made up of old fire roads with the state park road in between. There are great beginner trails right off of the paved road. However, there are so many different trails including the Mohawk Blue Trail, one could spend many hours finding them all. There are several old fire towers on the mountain with some great views into NY and MA. If you are looking for a kick in the teeth, look for the entrance to Mohawk Ski Area along the paved road for some great downhills on the snow-less ski slopes. However, getting back up the where you will get the kick. It's a lot steeper than you think ;).

Mohawk is what you make of it. For the best challenge, start at the bottom of the Ski Area and climb. It's a tough climb, but you're done in 20 minutes. Then enter into the State Park through connecting trails. In the park there are numerous fire roads and hiking trails that double as mountain bike trails (the "blue" trail system goes through here). Almost all of these are challenging and technical with plenty of rocks and some logs and occasional tough climbs and scary downhills. There are great views at the top of the ski area and then at the top of the State Park.

Customer Service

Start at the bottom of the Ski Area and take the trails to the farthest right up and then cut left and past where a chair unloads and make the next right up. An extremely steep climb, but then you're at the top. Then take trails into the State Park. Go left onto the paved road to the next parking area. Cut diagonal right and uphill past a campsite area and then bear left onto technical singletrack. When it empties out, take a right on the jeep trail. Take your next right onto another singletrack trail and go on that up a ridge and then take your next left down more singletrack. Cross a jeep trail and paved road and you will hit a camp complex. Go through it and down the dirt road to the left (Wadham's Road). After a long down it then goes up. Take your next right onto a snowmobile trail: some tough, wet, rocky moderate climbing. At the end, cross the paved road and start down the trail, but make a right after 20 yards onto more singletrack. (Now I'm running out of room, but there are more trails you can find off the main roads through the park as they head towards the fire tower at the top of the mountain/paved road. I found these myself by just banging around in the park).
