Located along the southern border of Massachusetts in the towns of Granville and Tolland, this state forest's 2,426 acres, borders with Connecticut's 9,152 acre Tunxis State Forest, creating a sense of tranquil remoteness. Formerly, this extensive rolling terrain was once the hunting and fishing ground of the Tunxis tribe, later becoming open farmland and pastures; now slowly reverting back into a northern hardwood-conifer forest. In 1749 the first English pioneer to this area, Samuel Hubbard, settled along the banks of the river now bearing his name. Enjoy a walk along the Hubbard River as it cascades through natural rock formations forming pools and waterfalls, dropping a rapid 450 feet in 2.5 miles.
