Table Rock (Pomfret)

Table Rock
Mashamoquet Brook State Park

It’s a big rock. It’s flat… Like a table. It’s in the middle of the woods at Mashamoquet Brook State Park in Pomfret. I’m not sure what more I can say about it.

Table Rock is situated just off of the Red Trail right below the northern intersection with the Blue Trail, about a third of a mile south of Wolf Den Drive. I don’t know what I expected beyond what I got. I wouldn’t mind having a picnic on Table Rock someday, but then I’d be eating lunch ON the table instead of AT the table, and that’s just not polite.

Of the three named rock features in the park, this one is probably the lamest – but hey, it’s still cool. It’s not like you have a giant stone table in your backyard, now do you? The other two natural stone formations are the much more interesting Wolf Den (CTMQ Visit here) and slightly more interesting Indian Chair (CTMQ Visit here).


CTMQ is nothing if not thorough.
