      Located south of the Millers River, Wendell State Forest covers 7,566 acres of rolling forested hills, streams, ponds, and trails. Purchased in the 1920s the area had been heavily burned during the early 1900s. Some of the park development and most of the road systems are attributed to Civilian Conservation Corps activities in the 1930s.

      Ruggles Pond is the main day-use area. This 10 acre pond offers opportunities for swimming and fishing. Picnic sites and a ball field with a pavilion are located nearby. There is a small boat launching ramp located at the Northern end of Wickett Pond. The Metacomet - Monadnock Trail traverses the forest boundaries and offers a small Adirondack shelter for trail users.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
