Pachaug Trail, Laurel Loop, Nehantic Trail

★★★  5.37 miles

blisters basically healed, so did a 5+ mile loop through the pachaug. not my favorite hike, although it had some nice parts. very wet due to yesterday’s heavy rains—the trail was almost a brook in spots. this is gonna be great when the laurels bloom, though. 90:10 hikey:walkey, a bit of climby but nothing arduous.
