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

Great Trail!

June, 2020 by dcnjchan

Biked yesterday with my son from north to south end. Paved most of the way. Completed it then got on local roads to connect to Jones Beach Bike path all the way to Jones Beach boardwalk. All in all about 23 miles one way.

Saturday Morning

June, 2020 by ewebster4

Haven’t been on this path in 15 years. It still is beautiful and well maintained. I do have to say it was a little crowded even at 7:30 in the morning. The path is shared walkers ,runners and bikers and it did tend to get a little busy. Overall I enjoyed it not as much as the old days but still a very nice path.

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.

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!

Bronx River Greenway

Way too many cars

June, 2020 by bruno.riemenschneider

Do not think it is one trail. I wanted to make a day tour and decided half way I am going to ride something else. Some segments are nice, but then theres really busy roads in between

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.
