Mashamoquet Brook State Park
Pomfret Center, CT

For this trip, we will backpack a segment of the Airline Trail into Mashamoquet Brook State Park in Pomfret Center, CT. Then, we will continue backpacking along the Airline to another trailhead. The hiking portion will likely be about five miles each day.

This park has a pond with swimming, so a swim suit and small towel are recommended.

Use our Backwoods Camping List to make sure you don't forget anything. Be sure to include plenty of water. See other camping information on our Camping page.
