Image of Boy Letterboxing

Letterboxing is fun and exciting.  It is about the adventure of finding your way through the woods and the thrill of reaching your goal.  In letterboxing, you visit interesting locations and collect unique stamps to mark your visit. The letterboxes that DEEP's Division of Forestry is placing in Connecticut’s State Forests provide the means and inspiration for you to visit the State Forests and learn something about the state’s history, wildlife, trees and, of course, the forests!

Before visiting any of the below letterboxes please be sure to check the respective letterboxing webpage(s).  Sometimes letterboxes are undergoing repairs and therefore are not available.  Thank you for your understanding.
