Hell Hollow Loop

Hell Hollow Loop

7.5 miles; Voluntown and Sterling, CT Mileage hike. Um, perhaps I should explain that… See, I’ve been on Weight Watchers for lo, these many months (since the last week of March). And I’ve found that you can get a lot more flexibility in your weekly points allowance when you do a minimum of one really […]

Regicides Trail, Part 1

Regicides Trail, Part 1

6 miles; New Haven, CT I decided to do this 7-mile blue-blazed trail in sections after seeing how intense it was with my friend Stacy last month. VERY glad I made this decision. It’s a rugged trail and has some serious ups and downs. Interesting, though. Can’t wait to do more. First off, last month […]

Shenipsit Trail Section 3

8.1 miles; Glastonbury, Manchester, and Vernon, CT Wow, it’s been a year and a half since I last hiked the Shenipsit. It would be a vast understatement to say that last year was just not a great year for me. But I finally got back to trying to complete this blue-blazed hiking trail, and I’m […]

1.7 miles; Bethany and New Haven, CT My old hiking pal Stacy made a visit up from Florida, and we attempted to hike the length of the Regicides Trail, but only got as far as, uh, the junction with the Quinnipiac, the Regicides, and the Sanford Feeder Trail. It was raining, and the going was […]

Narragansett Trail Section Exploration

2.44 miles; North Stonington, CT Today’s hike was like deja vu all over again (see Pelloni, Phony Baloney). I had heard through the hiking grapevine that this section, closed since the Spring of 2016, might be re-opened, so I decided to take advantage of yet another lovely February day and go check. Um… not so […]

Nyantaquit Trail

4.8 miles; Lyme, CT After my too-ambitious plan to hike the Warner Trail got postponed till Spring, I kind of slacked off. More than 2 weeks passed without my going anywhere at all to hike, and that was a mistake. My second mistake was picking this particular trail to start up with again, because it […]
