Out of the Woods: The Story of Cornwall's Forests

Wyantenock State Forest

Collection of Cornwall Historical Society

Considered part of Mohawk State Forest when it was acquired by Connecticut in 1925, Wyantenock consists of nine different parcels of land located in Cornwall, Warren, and Kent.

It is one of Connecticut’s least-visited forests, with little or no public access or developed recreation areas.

Wyantenock provides vital habitats for wildlife, watershed protection, and opportunities for commercial logging.
