Gungywamp is an archaeological site of distinct natural and cultural interest in neighboring Groton, stewarded by the Nature Center and in 2023 was confirmed to the Connecticut State Register of Historic Places and named a State Archaeological Preserve.
In this private guided hike, partially on private land accessible only with a DPNC guide, you’ll walk through the woods and absorb the mysteries of one of Connecticut’s most intriguing historical sites. Explore the north and south complexes, as seen on the History Channel, as well as rocky ridges, glacial erratics and swamps. Learn about the enigmatic stone shelters and structures whose use and origins remain shrouded in mystery, and could be the work of pre-Columbian Celtic settlers as far back as 500 AD. The hike lasts approximately two hours and covers 1.5 miles over uneven terrain.
