      The Eastern Block of Nehantic State forest is wrapped around Hartman Park, it’s border is the border of the Town of Lyme and East Lyme. There is access from the fire road in Hartman park as well as a parking lot at the end of Holmes Road. Currently there is a fire road stretching the length of the forest with a few small single track trails branching off the small circle on the southern end.

      Plans for more bike minded trails to be added are in the works and if you’d like to be involved please contact Southeastern CT NEMBA.
