Mashamoquet Brook State Park

Indian Chair is right on the Blue Trail amidst a bunch of large cliffs near the top of a fairly steep little hill. The park has carved and helpfully painted yellow signs pointing the way – otherwise, you’d probably miss the rock chair, especially if approaching from the north. (Coming up the hill, from the south, your pace will be decidedly slower and the chair provides a perfect little spot to catch your breath.)
It’s pretty cool; this rock chair. It makes you feel like a caveman, relaxing over your woodland domain in the chair you just spent the season chiseling out of sheer boredom. Of course, this chair is entirely natural – though its placement certainly feels artificial; sitting out on a flat ledge above a fairly substantial cliff. I rather enjoyed hanging out in Indian Chair.
What better way to spend a couple hours than traipsing among some northeastern Connecticut hills and cliffs finding rock chairs and tables? Y’know, they should move Indian Chair over to Table Rock so people have a place to sit. I’ll see if I can use my CTMQ pull.
