Nathanial Lyon Memorial State Park
5 acres in Eastford, CT
Parking: Small lot along Kingsbury Rd Eastford, CT
Trail Map Trails: Less than a mile Rating: ★★☆☆☆
The park is mostly a picnic area next to an old chimney though it easily connects to the Natchaug trail network for hikes of any distance.
The park is named for Nathanial Lyon, the first Union general to be killed in the Civil War. I haven’t yet found a date for when this was established as a state park.
