Babcock Pond Wildlife Management Area in Colchester is an artist's palette filled with a blot of meadows, a squirt of swamps, a spot of lily-covered ponds and smudge of pine forests. It's up to you to create-your-own hike masterpiece because there is one main road bisecting the more than 1,500 acres of forest, swamp and ponds and miles of unmarked trails snaking through the natural world canvas. Read story and see photos here.
