Bullard Woods Loop is one of the most accessible old growth forests in New England.

Directions: Take Rt. 7 north to Cornwall.  At the junction of Rt 4 and Rt 7, continue on Rt. 7 north for one mile.  The sign for Pine Knob Loop is on the left hand side.  Go slowly because it's easy to drive by the dirt parking lot which accesses the trail head.  If you have problems proceed to the The Housatonic Meadows State Park campground which is about a 1/2 mile up from Pine Knob and ask the ranger about the trail.   ( You can also try Mapquest.com for custom directions. )
