Description

Dunham Woods

Joshua’s Trust

17 acres in Mansfield, CT

Parking: Shoulder parking near 255 S Eagleville Rd Storrs, CT

Trail Map          Trails: Less than a mile         Rating: ★★☆☆☆


Dunham Woods is a short lollipop loop that crosses a boardwalk into the forest near Dunham Pond.  Recent stewardship from a trail crew has reopened a bit of a view to the pond from the rock and sitting bench mid-trail.

The rock has plaque dedicating the area to Carrick McLaughlin.

The backside of the loop has a connection to Dunhamtown Forest for an additional 3 miles of hiking trails.  There are also newish connector trails to the Glen Ridge Housing.

Owen’s Mere, another Joshua’s Trust property, is a short distance from the parking area across South Eagleville Road.  I find it hard to suggest it as an add on to this hike given how busy the South Eagleville road walk could be.

History:

Preserved in 1987.
