Souhtbury is lucky to have 3-4 state parks and land trust properties. Live close and use all the time, in every season. Nice trail system with some scenic overlooks of the Housatonic. Great for cross country skiing in the winter.

They have a very nice little beach area in a cove. The hiking trails are well laid out and maintained. They also have a camping area. It’s a nice gem.
