Whether you prefer a gentle stroll or a rigorous uphill scramble, Connecticut, and our surrounding area, offers an abundance of opportunities to walk, run and hike for any fitness level. Even better, being along the seashore, breathing in the forest air or marveling at the view atop a mountain is great for your mental health, too!
We’ve assembled a guide to trails within about an hour’s drive for you to explore. Most are accessible year-round and provide a range of challenge levels, but please visit the park website for notices on hours, closures and trail conditions. Check it out here!
As always, please consult with your doctor prior to undertaking any new physical activity. Happy trails!
