Chatfield Hollow State Park is a beautiful park located in Killingworth, CT. There are numerous colored trails in Chatfield Hollow that can also be combined with a section of neighboring Cockaponset State Forest for over 10 miles of hiking. Be sure to take the Green Chimney Trail to explore some Indian Caves and get a view looking out to the west. The park is especially beautiful in the fall with so many different colored leaves reflecting off the streams and ponds along the trails. In the center of the park is a pond where you can go swimming or relax on the beach on the east side of the pond. On the west side of the pond you will find picnic tables and grills for picnicking.  
Parking is charged from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
