Trailhead Information

Devil's Hill is in the eastern part of Groton State Forest and access is available from Peacham. 

From Groton Village: travel north on Minard Hill Road which becomes Peacham Road which becomes Groton Road which becomes Peacham-Groton Road which becomes South Main Street in South Peacham. Just north of South Peacham, turn left on Maple Tree Lane and go 0.7 miles. Turn left on Green Bay Loop Road and go 1.3 miles. Turn right on Devil's Hill Road (no road sign) which is just beyond a green log home, and go 1 mile to the kiosk/parking area. It is best to walk from here since parking/turning space is very limited further ahead. About 0.1 miles beyond the kiosk area is a gate across Devil's Hill trail.
