View the rugged hills of this wildlife sanctuary or visit a black spruce bog to experience a unique plant community.

From 1,683 foot Mohawk Mountain, on a clear day, the view is literally “forever”.  Colonial historians note the use of the high promontory by the Tunxis and Paugussett Indians who used smoke signals to warn local tribes of the approach of the dreaded Mohawks from the north and west.  Although tribal wars terminated centuries ago, the name “Mohawk Mountain” has carried forward.
