Bluff Point, Haley Farm and the G&S Trolley Line

4.5 miles; Groton, CT This was originally going to be a Cross Groton Trail hike, but my hiking partner had some time constraints, so we did our TSTLC photo on Haley Farm and then visited the latest Peter Marteka column subject, the G&S Trolley Line trail. Have you guys ever read Peter’s Nature column in the […]

Bay Circuit Trail, Section 2

| April 19, 2017

6.5 miles; Newbury and Rowley, MA Ugh. This was almost entirely on Route 1A, and not a lot of fun. The first mile was in a Trustees of the Reservations property called Old Town Hill, and that was nice. Oh, and it was also about 40 degrees colder today than it was a week ago […]

Mashamoquet Brook to Natchaug via Air Line Trail

12.1 miles; Hampton, Eastford and Pomfret, CT Day #4 of my Five Hikes in Five Days almost killed me [Spoiler: It didn’t.] It came about because I was looking at the Sky’s the Limit Hiking Challenges, and noticed that these two TSTLC destination parks were connected to each other via the Air Line Trail and thought, […]

Cockaponset Trail South

8.41 miles; Haddam and Chester, CT Day Three and Hike #3 of Five Hikes in Five Days was a bit more challenging than days 1 and 2. I took this opportunity to finish this one blue-blazed trail system. It’s nice you don’t have to out-and-back on the same trail, what with all the side trails. This […]
