Surrounded by greenery, Bigelow Hollow State Park is a world away from the bustle of city life, offering visitors the chance to relax amid secluded environs. Owing to the trails winding through the woodlands, hiking is one of the most popular activities at the park. It features an eponymous pond that offers opportunities for boating and fishing. You can also dive into the waters and traverse its depths, or grab a picnic table and unwind with loved ones. Cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are favorite pastimes during the winter.
