Mattatuck State Forest


Mattatuck State Forest is the reality of Mr. Harley F. Roberts’ vision. Initiated with a land donation from Roberts’ Black Rock Association in 1925, Mattatuck’s many parcels are spread out over many towns and offer a wide variety of forest experiences to the visitor. Various trails lead hikers past interesting topography to excellent overlooks while hunters, in season, make use of the forest for its wide variety of wildlife.
