Went for a drive yesterday looking for this and that in northwest Ct. Happened to stop by this location, have a dam or two actually, and a tree.  Lots of trees. I always laugh when people argue that you couldn’t possibly get lost in the woods around here. It is true that you couldn’t get lost in thousands of square miles of trackless wilderness. And as long as you have two good feet and keep walking without going in a circle, you will hit a road within a few hours.  But, nonetheless, you could do a pretty decent job of getting mislaid, especially in an area where the topography is so solidly confused.


Colebrook River Dam and in the distance the Hogback Dam*. The area is open to various types of recreation, though with multiple overlapping agencies and owners, it pays to check the current regulations carefully.

*It has some other official name, but is known as Hogback.
