  • Chatfield Trail In Killingworth: Where Your Hike Becomes An Adventure

    Chatfield Trail In Killingworth: Where Your Hike Becomes An Adventure
    The thought first crossed my mind as I contorted my body under ledges and sucked in my stomach to fit through narrow gaps between boulders as I followed the blue blazes along Burlington's "Mile of Ledges." That same thought ran through my head Wednesday...
  • A Ghostly Mountaintop With A View

    A Ghostly Mountaintop With A View
    Each year, I make my annual trek to Meriden Square or the nearby Target in the Silver City. And each year, usually while mumbling about waiting until the last minute, I stare up at the Hanging Hills of Meriden and Berlin and let out a great big sigh....
  • The Rare And Mysterious Atlantic Cedar Swamp

    The Rare And Mysterious Atlantic Cedar Swamp
    If you want to explore an Atlantic cedar swamp, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you are going to get wet — especially during this year of no winter. Second, if you are afraid of things that go bump in the night or your imagination...
  • An Undulating Journey To The State's Highest Falls

    An Undulating Journey To The State's Highest Falls

    The Ridges And Peaceful Valley Of Lyme
    Two images come to mind when one mentions the words "peaceful valley." The first image is of a place where the only sounds visitors hear are autumn's final leaf rattling at the end of a branch, a babbling brook tumbling over boulders through the...
  • The Land Of The Ancient Pines

    I now know what the steel ball feels like when it is being whopped around the bumpers in a pinball machine. On a recent visit to the wilds of Litchfield County, I was mesmerized by the sunlight flashing through the breaks in the white pine canopy. My...
  • Great Discoveries For Hikers At George Dudley Seymour State Park

    Great Discoveries For Hikers At George Dudley Seymour State Park
    I spent much of my youth exploring the wilds of East Hampton's Hurd State Park. I tossed stones down the seemingly bottomless chasm of Split Rock, listening for their landings. We picnicked in a glade above Carlson Pond, scaled White Mountain and walked...
  • Use Caution On Trails And In Parks This Weekend

    Whenever I am out in the woods, I always think I'm going to become one of those victims of fate or Murphy's Law. There is a tree leaning over the trail up ahead, so when I walk under it, the tree will fall on my head. Or the rickety, old trail bridge...
  • Charter Oak Greenway Extension Lives Up To Potential

     Charter Oak Greenway Extension Lives Up To Potential
    While walking the most recent extension of the Charter Oak Greenway in Manchester, I didn't really see the clear Birch Mountain Brook as it tumbled through a ravine filled with hemlocks. I didn't look at the couple enjoying lunch on a picnic table near...
  • Andover's Bridge To Somewhere

    Andover's Bridge To Somewhere
    As I stood on the trail and wondered whether or not I should venture forth, I felt like I was a kid again standing on the edge of a freshly frozen pond. Back then, I would stretch one leg out, touching the surface of the ice and gingerly putting my weight...
  • Legend Lives On In The Indian Caves Of Mattatuck Trail

    Ah, the Indian caves. If you've hiked in the wilds of Connecticut, you've undoubtedly come across many of them, as they dot the landscape from "Squaw Cave" in Bolton to "Council Caves" in Barkhamsted to "King Philip's Cave" in Simsbury. And, no, they...
