There is no more beautiful place to view fall foliage than Clarksburg. The abundant, unspoiled forestland offers breathtaking views of both the Berkshire Hills and Green Mountains. At the state park, scenic Mauserts Pond is a landscaped day use area offering swimming, picnicking, fishing, and a pavilion area. The pond is skirted by a scenic trail along which visitors can observe a variety of wild plants and animals. 50 well-spaced campsites are located near the lake.
The state forest is a 2,933-acre tract of undisturbed land popular with hunters. The Appalachian Trail passes through the forest, which was once home to the Mohawk Indians.
