Trimountain State Park is a serene natural space known for its hiking trails and picturesque views. The park features three peaks, hence the name "Trimountain", offering visitors challenging hikes with rewarding panoramic vistas at each summit. It's also home to diverse wildlife species, making it an ideal spot for nature enthusiasts or those seeking tranquility away from city life.

History of the Area
The park is known for its three distinct peaks. It was established as a state property in 1926. The area's natural beauty and diverse wildlife attract many visitors annually.

The name "Trimountain" refers to the site's unique topography of having three prominent hills within its boundaries - West Peak, East Peak, and South Mountain.

In World War II it served as an observation post due to strategic location offering panoramic views over surrounding areas.

Over time facilities were added including picnic spots and hiking trails making it popular among outdoor enthusiasts.

Today it remains under management by Department of Energy & Environmental Protection ensuring preservation for future generations.
Connecticut has made state parks, forests, trails, historic sites and beaches more accessible to our residents so they can enjoy the many attractions and beauty they offer. Under the Passport to the Parks program, parking fees are now eliminated at Connecticut State Parks for those with Connecticut registered vehicles. You can view the CONNECTICUT PASSPORT TO THE PARKS web page to learn more.

Trimountain State Park offers scenic picnic spots with tables. Grassy areas are perfect for blankets and outdoor games.
