Wrong, i was walking around my short well cleared trail around my property this morning, below freezing temps and still snow on the ground in spots, got in the car to go to work and was shocked to find a tick crawling up my leg. grrr! I guess its that time again..

We live pretty close to Devil's Den, Huntington State Park and the Saugatuck Falls area. We love hiking in all those parks, although they are not as big or impressive as the mountains. Saugatuck Falls actually has water falls that could be hiked up, since they are not too steep. If you live around Danbury-Norwalk, the above mentioned sites are a good option for hiking, especially if you just want to spend only a couple of hours in the nature

Yup. I've heard several reports of ticks already this year, and from well cleared areas.

I really like White Memorial Nature, Camping, Museum, Environmental Education - White Memorial Conservation Center, Litchfield, CT for more flat hiking. The Talcott Mountain Ridge trail to the tower is really nice too, with a bit of uphill to it. DEEP: Talcott Mountain State Park.

Bluff Head Ridge in North Guilford. Easy hike but some non steep climbing involved. Less than 1 hour to Top with some lookout points along the way. Trail was mostly along the edge of the hill.



Sign says serious injury or death can occur if you fall off the cliff.









A loud blast scared the massive flock of birds. No idea what the blast was. (Highway? Shot Gun? Explosion?) Kinda reminded me I was too close to civilization still. But a nice hike it was.

funny that this thread popped up.. just yesterday i was on Atkins St in E Berlin and noticed what at first looked like a sidewalk but turned out to be a full blown trail of some kind at least - it was paved and not really in the woods but it stretched out for quite a ways. here's a link to google maps (may have to zoom in)..

Atkins path

anybody know what trail this is? there's no mention of the name on the map.

Slipperman-

I know what that is---it's an abandoned golf course. The course is now owned by the town of Berlin and is open to the public. There is no golf course there now, it's all overgrown, but is used simply as open space.

The pavement you see is golf cart paths and there may be a few miles or more of them. From what I've heard it's is a really good walk/ hike with interesting terrain and some good views.

For the life of me, the name of the place escapes me, but if you Googled you might be able to find out.
