Directions - Just take 82 to 156 south, through hamburg, look for a sign for the state forest, its a left, after you drive by it, do a u-turn, and take a right..

Description - Nehantic State forest in Lyme is a small state forest with many fire roads and a small blue trail system..  There are some great trails here, singletrack, some rocky, some technical, but its chopped up way too much by many short hike a bikes, couple moderate hike a bikes..   Very desolate area..  Best riding I found was the ride down the spine of nickerson hill..  I was also chasing an orange cat down this trail, which I though was strange..  If your in the neighborhood this can be a good ride, but not without punishment, expect to push your bike up and down some hills and over some downed trees..
