Paugnut State Forest
Torrington & Winchester
Though Paugnut sounds like a kind of tree, it was supposedly a Native American chief back in the day. There is some dispute about the veracity of this claim. Regardless, we now have a decently sized state forest that more or less connects two state parks in Torrington.
There are a jumble of trails, maintained by multiple organizations. It’s tough for me to parse what’s what, but I guess – as always – the best way to do so is to get boots on the ground and see what’s doin’ out in the Litchfield Hills.
