About this Location

Trails have been built by volunteers, including the Boy Scouts and the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps, and are maintained by a dedicated volunteer group. Although this park takes its name from a hurricane that struck the area in the late 1700s, there is ample evidence of the effects of a more recent occurrence: the hurricane of September 21, 1938, toppled many old-growth white pine trees whose giant trunks remain today. There are other areas with enormous ancient trees still standing, including white pine and red oak.

Hurricane Forest Park is managed by the Town of Hartford Parks and Recreation Department.
