About State Line Trailhead

This trailhead will bring visitors to the edge of Clarksburg State Park. From this point, hikers will proceed on an easy trail through a dense maple forest. Then, eventually, visitors will arrive at the Pond Trail.

The Pond Trail is a three-mile, family-friendly path that circumnavigates Mauserts Pond. The trail travels through a white pine and hemlock forest, offering scenic views of the Berkshires as they reflect across the pond's water. Frogs and birds are easily heard during the summertime, and many cross-country skiers choose this trail for its silence in the winter. Fall colors are also spectacular along the path, making it popular when the weather cools.

Halfway along the trail, visitors can rest and picnic at the state park's beach. This shaded area is perfect for a lunchtime pitstop by the water. Numerous benches along the trail also provide an ideal place to rest and watch the water ripple. On the weekends, the pond becomes more populated as people go fishing, boating, canoeing, and kayaking on the water.

There is parking for 2-3 cars at the trailhead. Visitors should park on the shoulder of Horrigan Road where safe.
