Hop River State Park Trail

Bear on trail

August, 2017 by blueskye

It has been reported that a large bear was seen on the trail section between Hop River Rd. and Parker Bridge Rd. in Columbia.

Moosup Valley State Park Trail

This is not a bicycle rail trail

August, 2017 by carrie.vezina

Wish I had read the reviews before wasting my time driving out. Maybe someday this will be a nice bike trail, but that day is a long way off for it's current condition. It is basically an abandoned rail trail that locals must use for dirt bikes and some mountain biking. There is no established, groomed trail, it is sandy, rocky, and muddy. There are trees across the trail in some areas. It does start off paved for maybe a half mile, but that paved section is full of graffiti. Once you get to the end of the paved section, you have to figure out where to pick the trail back up as there are no signs anywhere. If I could have given a negative star, I would have.

Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail (WIndsor Locks Canal Towpath)

Bumpy but nice ride by river

August, 2017 by smithsr

As others mentioned a little bumpy from roots. Parking on south end is just beyond an old factory building. Turn down single lane road just before canal. There looks to be a gate across the trail, but there is a bike opening to the right. North end has nicer parking in a small park. Some historical info about canal in park. Trail continues north beyond park. Not sure how far it goes.

Pequonnock River Trail

broken trail

August, 2017 by timuze

This trail has a little bit of everything ..... asphalt, grass, hard packed dirt or gravel. We started on the North end at Pepper went south and was for the most part going on a slight downhill 80% of the way to The Trumbull trail end. It was for the most part lovely. Often very wide and smooth. I would go the opposite way as Linda and I always prefer to glide back to the car.

Farmington Canal Rail Trail (New Section) (NW Dr to Red Oak Hill Rd)

July, 2017 by russccc

Hi All,

They recently put the steel in place for the bridge over CT RT 6 in Farmington for Farmington Canal Rail Trail (FCRT). The section maybe in the maybe done in the fall of 2017? It should be complete rather fast! I scouted it out via car lots of this section done.

Hop River State Park Trail

Riding the Hop River Trail

July, 2017 by furboy

We had two cars, and wanted to ride one way so we left one car behind the First Congregational Church 359 US 6, Andover, CT. The second car we parked at the trailhead 175 Colonial Rd, Manchester, CT where there is a dedicated parking lot. By car it was 15 minutes driving time one way between locations. From our start point we crossed RT 6 in front of the church to pick up the trail and then rode to the right heading west. The first 5 miles were a definite uphill grade, around mile 6 it became a downhill grade all the way to Manchester. Total distance between the two locations approximately 12 miles. Considering the trail is mostly hard packed dirt it was very well maintained, wider in some areas than others with a few road crossings. The scenery was mostly rocks that had been blasted through back when the railroad was built with a lot of ferns and greenery, but never saw the Hop River. There were mostly bikers on the trail, and everyone was very friendly. Other than the uphill grade for 5 miles it was a very pleasant ride. If you're looking for a nearby place to stay I highly recommended the Daniel Rust House in Coventry which was only 12 minutes from the church by car.

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail

Best of Connecticut

July, 2017 by nimmorp01

Started in Hamdon and road to Southington. Round trip was 28.04 miles. Rented bicycles from Cheshire bike shop which was all of 50 feet from trail. Trail was nicely paved the entire way except for a very short detour.

New Milford River Trail

Access way a little rough

July, 2017 by linda.gaboardi

Once you get in the main trail, it's a nice, easy ride. But I picked up some kind of metal shard in my tire, and I suspect it was on the access trail that starts on Boardman.

Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail (WIndsor Locks Canal Towpath)

Beautiful but rough

July, 2017 by aswinsor

Beautiful ride along the river BUT you better have a very soft seat to absorb the rough surface!!

New Milford River Trail

Mostly Along River Road

July, 2017 by pbcibc

This is a nice place to stretch one's legs for about five miles. The southern end (just over Boardman Bridge from Route 7), with limited parking, runs through a town park for about 1.5 miles; the northern portion, ending at Gaylordsville, is just walking along the Housatonic on River Road, one of the few remaining dirt roads in the area. There is more parking at the park's main entrance off of River Road, about 1.5 miles north of Boardman Bridge.
If you like a flat trail in quiet woods and don't mind a few cars coming along, this is a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. "There and back again" is about ten miles.

Derby Greenway

Meh.

July, 2017 by nyjenniferc

Full of goose crap. Loud and noisy. Thought it would be serene and picturesque by the river, but it was really industrial and boring, with no shade. The parking lot in Derby sucks. The bridge in Derby was full of firework debris, paper and junk. Very disappointed.

Air Line State Park Trail

Airline Trail South

July, 2017 by CW4

The Town of East Hampton and the State DEEP have added 1.3 miles of riding to the existing Airline Trail - South. It is hard to see the extension from the current ending on Route 196, but if you cross 196 and divert right and into the fire department parking lot you will find the new section. The new section goes to Alden's Crossing, a 1/2 mile from the intersection of Routes 16 and 66. The parking at the new ending is only marginal, 1-2 cars.
