Becket Hill is an undeveloped state park between Uncas Pond and Grassy Hill Rd.  It is often confused with the nearby parcel of the Nehantic State Forest and the Nayantaquit Trail.

I haven’t yet attempted to explore the park so I don’t know if there are trails of any sort.

History:

Established as a state park in 1961.  It is named for an early settler of the area, Beckwith.
