Description

Natchaug State Forest is  located in six towns including Ashford, Chaplin, and Eastford. The Natchaug River runs from north to south along the western border of the main forest parcel. James L. Goodwin State Forest abuts Natchaug to the south.

The trails are fun old school mountin bike trails. They are shared with hikers and equestrians and campers. It's a fun place to ride.

Directly north of it is Mashamoquet Brook State Park which in addition to trails also has swimming.

Attempting to ride Goodwin, Natchaug and Mashamoquet in one ride would certainly be a epic adventure.
