Wyantenock State Forest is one of the best-kept secrets of Litchfield County! The forest consists of over 4,000 acres scattered among nine different parcels of land, spread throughout the towns of Warren, Kent and Cornwall.

Many of these blocks of forest have little or no public access and Wyantenock has virtually no ?developed? recreation areas for public use. As such, Wyantenock remains one of Connecticut?s least visited state forests. It is a rugged, remote forest that enhances the quality of life in Litchfield County by providing open space, wildlife habitat, opportunities for the production of commercial forest products, and watershed protection. The forest was originally considered part of Mohawk State Forest when the first land was acquired in 1925. As land was added, Wyantenock received its own designation.

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.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
September 26 a good loop
park review stars; one to five OK for an hour walk in the woods, but not very exciting.
August 8 quiet
park review stars; one to five logging or fire roads, heavily wooded, good for a run because you get the big hills over with in the very beginning. Might be fun to cross country ski.
July 20 Boring
park review stars; one to five Nothing to do or see here, really. Just some trails for loggers and water company trucks. A couple of swamps.
