Savoy Mountain State Forest

North Pond, at Savoy Mountain State Forest, is a local favorite when it comes to an evening swim after a hot day. Both North and South Ponds, with wooded edges and hills rising in the distance, offer tranquil places to fish, picnic and swim. 45 campsites and 1 group site are located in an old apple orchard. Four log cabins overlook South Pond, available for year-round rental.

Over 50 miles of wooded trails invite year-round recreational access to spectacular natural features. Hike the Bog Pond Trail, with its floating bog islands. Or climb up Spruce Hill on the Busby Trail for breathtaking views, especially during fall foliage and hawk migration. Be sure to visit Tannery Falls (and nearby Parker Brook Falls), where Ross Brook flows through a deep chasm, and then cascades over 50 feet to a clear pool below.
