    Route 49, P.O. Box 5, Voluntown, CT 06384. Phone: (860) 376-4075.

    Pachaug State Forest began with a land purchase in Voluntown, in 1928. At present, Pachaug covers about 24,000 acres in six towns, and is the largest forest in the State system. The word “Pachaug” is derived from the Indian term meaning bend or turn in the river. The Pachaug River, running from Beach Pond to the Quinebaug River, runs through the center of the forest. Old cellar holes and miles of stone fence winding through the woods give evidence that the entire forest was once farmed or pastured. Abundant water encouraged the establishment of a mill industry as early as 1711. Nearly every brook has several old mill sites and dams. Homestead farming and small industry succumbed to advancing modern technology; the forest reclaims its land.

The Blue Trails, developed and maintained by the Connecticut Forest and Park Association, are located on both public and private lands and their continuance is dependent in many cases upon the goodwill of landowners. Thus all hikers are requested to stay on the established trails and to respect the rights and property of landowners on and adjacent to the trail. The backpacking tours are provided for the true backpacker only and therefore the length of stay at any one location is limited to one night. The campsites are available year round, barring unusual or severe weather conditions. The backpack camping zones offer primitive campsites with few facilities. Although several have Adirondack-type camp shelters of limited capacity, campers are advised to bring their own tents. Also, drinking water is not provided except at approved state park and forest wells. Backpacker use only. Tents only.
