OLD FURNACE STATE PARK

What was once the site of a furnace that produced locally mined iron for horseshoes and mill parts is now a state owned park with a three-mile trail traversing it. The middle of the trail hits a high point with a clearing and beautiful views of Ross' Pond.

The park is in Killingly, Connecticut, just a few miles west of the Rhode Island border where Route 6 meets 395. The park sits adjacent to Ross Pond State Park. The blue blazed trail will take you straight through the middle of both, giving you the best views of the landscape.
















 

Accessible day trips & short adventures, intertwined with a little history & a big appreciation for strange landscapes & notable natural landmarks.
