Bluff Point, Haley Farm & The G+S Trolley Trail

6.5 miles; Groton, CT This was mostly a revisit to a place I hiked with my friends Stacy and Dallas back in April of 2017. Through this blog I was asked by someone at the Rails to Trails Conservancy if I had any pictures of the trail from that original hike. Turns out I didn’t have any […]

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 […]

If you’re a “lady of a certain age,” and very short for your weight, as I am, and you don’t freakin’ hike for almost 3 weeks, […]

Bluff Point SP

4.5 miles; Groton, CT Ugh. I haven’t been hiking much lately because, ever since I got back from Arizona, the local trails all seem so… familiar and boring, I guess. But I decided I had to drag my sorry butt out today, and I’m [and I’ll bet you never saw this coming—Ed.] glad I did. I went […]

Groton Crosstown Trail

7.8 miles; groton, ct the groton crosstown trail runs from bluff point state park to avalonia’s town’s end preserve, crossing six other properties in between with only a short bit of road-walking. i’ve been wanting to do this hike for ages, but because it’s (ostensibly) a 6-mile one-way hike, i needed a car spot. the […]
