While there are no maintained trails, there is a rough path heading west of the pond into the woods. It was blazed at one point in time with white blazes but it fades away about 0.3 miles in near the western border of the park.
‘A Shared Landscape’ from 2004 notes an unmarked trail around the pond that has grown in and now requires a little bushwhacking to make it around.
The northern section of the park in Chaplin is adjacent to the Air Line Trail. Should this park ever be developed, it would be a great to formally link the pond, Beaver Brook, and the Air Line Trail into one network.
Bibbins (Beaver Brook) Pond is 20 acres with mainly pickerel and bass. A handicap access fishing platform juts into the water. There is a rough boat ramp for canoes and kayaks but use of all motors is prohibited.
Established as a park in 1955, Beaver Brook State Park is a gift to the people of Connecticut from the George Dudley Seymour Trust.
