Long Description:
The tri-state corner is a little bit out of the way, but actually quite reasonable to access. There are several routes - it is a landmark called out on the trail maps for Massachusetts's Douglas State Forest. One option is then to park near Wallum Lake in Massachusetts and hike here. Another is to park due west in Connecticut. There is a rails-to-trails path which will take you close to the mark, and then you can take the state forest trails to the monument itself. The rails-to-trails trail is in fact the railroad seen on Google Maps there (at the time of this waymark's creation).
