Larkin State Park Trail

Schizophrenic Trail

July, 2020 by e.l.smierciak

Started at the western trailhead on Kettletown Road. Nothing but a single track -- including a climb down to Jeremy Swamp Road to cross and then a climb up the other side. Clearly, decades ago there was a rail bridge here, but it's gone. For a while, the trail is fine, but then another problem on this leg is that the trail becomes virtual impassible for bicycles -- you are trying to ride up a creek bed full of grapefruit sized rocks.

East of Strongtown/CT 188, there is a mix of beautiful gravel surface through the woods with some low spots/mud (we've had some rain). The route is wooded and quiet -- really nice ride. You will likely encounter horses (I passed a single rider and a pair on this ride). Etiquette is to be very careful and slow -- give them a shout as to which side they'd prefer you pass on. Also a lot of wetland. If you're moving fast on a bike, it's OK, but walking you're going to be dealing with A LOT of mosquitoes.

Summary -- with some investment this could be one of the prettiest rides in CT, but there are some real rough/muddy spots.

I can see where this could be a beautiful autumn ride. Will give it a few more tries this season.


Branford Trolley Trail

Too Many Bicyclists & Walk Uninspiring

July, 2020 by sharonstrelzer

The foot bridge and immediate surrounding view very pretty is the highlight. The walk is flat and hard to find. You go under a road with concrete supports sprayed with a lot of graffiti and then leave a crushed gravel path for a concrete walkway over a marsh. The marsh is a habitat for egrets. The path was more for bicyclists, who were impatient about walkers on trail. dismounting for walkers. We skipped the concrete path due to heat and people on bikes

G & S Trolley trail

Great short, basic trail!

June, 2020 by ale8sailor

This trail is great for beginners, especially for my kids who just started riding without training wheels. There are a few moderate hills that may be difficult for single-speed bikes. Overall great experience with potential offshoots to Haley Farm, Bluff Point, and more.

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail

great ride

June, 2020 by rdrdr1

Parked in new haven and had a great ride to Cheshire. A lot of streets to cross at the beginning and end but still nice in new haven. Once things open up it is a perfect ride.

Hop River State Park Trail

Beautiful trail through the woods

June, 2020 by SPanny

We rode the Hop River trail on 6/13/20 from Willimantic (parking lot adjacent to Mackey’s Pet Store) to the Bolton Notch State Park and back, about 28 miles. If you’re looking for a packed dirt/cinder trail through the woods, this is just about perfect. Trail is in very good shape, almost all shaded, really takes you away. The trail from Willimantic to Bolton Notch features a long, gradual uphill – but really once you start pedaling it’s not difficult at all, and the route is so picturesque that you don’t really notice. Long sections run high along the river. Really a nice trail, highly recommended. Please also note that from this parking lot you can connect to the Air Line Trail…you’ll ride a path under Rt 66 and follow the paved trail along the river back towards Willimantic. The Air Line is also highly recommended!

Pequonnock River Trail

relaxing, clean, fresh air

June, 2020 by natashageorgakis

My husband and I drove to the trails over the weekend and really enjoyed this trail. Children can easily ride this trail on bikes with ease. Welcoming family atmosphere with joggers and families enjoying the sun. We will most definitely return!

Quinnipiac River Gorge Trail

I have trouble with my legs and was able to complete this walk. There are benches along the way. The trail is wide and paved.

Branford Trolley Trail

This is an easy walk. Use Google maps to find it, Waze brought me to a residential street. When you get to Stony Creek, there is a park with benches overlooking the water and Thimble Islands.

Kings Park Hike & Bike Trail

Bike Trail

Great bike trail to go with little ones. My boys are 6 and 5 and they loved riding the trail. Trail starts off Pulaski and ends, down by Nissequogie State Park.

Farmington River Trail

Very nice, incredibly varied, connects with local trails and Farmington Canal Trail

June, 2020 by SPanny

My wife and I rode this trail on 5/30/20, riding about 28 miles in all in a circle that also featured the Farmington Canal Trail. There are a number of different sections to this ride you need to be aware of before you go. We started at the parking lot on Red Oak Road, near the start. The first part of the trail, heading Northwest, runs on a very pretty course alongside the Farmington River, with lots of water views. Very scenic. There are several small towns along the particular, Collinsville has a nice little downtown with places to eat, and places to stop with picnic tables alongside the river. The route then proceeds back East, until you get to the intersection with Route 202/44/Albany Turnpike. There is then some riding along regular roads: Lawton, Notch, West Mountain. The roads are basically flat with good sight lines, not difficult if you're an experienced rider (I wouldn't take kids on this section). Off of West Mountain, you'll find an entrance (a little hard to spot, there was a temporary sign there) to a hard packed dirt/cinder trail that proceeds for a short distance. It ends, and then following the markings on the road, you'll again ride on-road (Town Forest Road) again for a short distance, at which point you'll pick up another dirt/cinder trail (Stratton Brook State Park Trail) which ends at Brushy Hill Road. Cross Route 309/Farms Village Road and on the other side of the street is a paved trail that takes you down to Simsbury, where you pick up the Farmington Canal Trail south that takes you back to the Red Oak parking lot. Be aware that there are some varied signs/directions as you ride through Avon that take you behind offices etc. in a confusing way...I guess they didn't have the room to just cut the trail straight through. But soon you'll be back on the conventional trail. But as for the ride:
What's nice about this ride was its diversity: the section along the river, some riding on country roads, the dirt/cinder path through the woods, and the more conventional trail from Simsbury south. Lots of places to stop and eat (especially Simsbury), many trail parking lots, we saw a lot of bathroom options . We know the Farmington Canal Trail well, were glad to discover this very nice connected option! Definitely check out the map at their website before you go. One more thing: we used our road bikes, and we were able to navigate the short dirt sections pretty don't need a mountain bike just for that.
