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.

This is a great short family-friendly hike with a big rewarding view. I liked that there's a good amount of space to walk around and explore on the flat area at the summit view. Perfect for young children as long as you keep a close eye at the edges at the top.
The drive on Mack Road and around Peacham when the leaves are turning is spectacular.
