Green Fall Gorge and Narragansett Trail

4.2 miles; Voluntown, CT Haven’t been on this trail since the drunk hunters way back when, and I missed it. Glad to be back. This is an even better look at the newly-installed boardwalk along a particularly treacherous section of the trail along the side of the ravine. I especially like the log ladder leading […]

Dean Easement and Hatch Lot

6.1 miles; East Haddam, CT Had this hike on my “Hikes I’d Like to Do” list forever, and just decided to go for it today. Glad I did… It’s a very nice property. This is actually a combination of two properties. Imma just let the Town of East Haddam take it from here: The 280-acre […]

Regicides Trail, Part 2

8 miles; New Haven, Hamden, Woodbridge CT I finally managed to finish this one up! [See this post for part 1.] What an amazing hike. Really loved it, and really felt good the whole way today, too. Seeing some color on the ground at least, if not in the trees. I took this little shortcut […]

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 […]

Outer Thimble Island

Branford, CT This isn’t really an account of a hike, per se, but a visit to an absolutely beautiful little island off the coast of Branford, Connecticut, that I (naturally) first read about in a Peter Marteka column. First some geography: The Thimble Islands, named after the once-ubiquitous thimbleberry bush and a prime source of […]

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 […]
