Wow, what a weekend! We couldn't have asked for better weather on June 7 & 8. The feedback we have received has been off the charts. Organizers, leaders, sponsors, and participants are reporting that this was the best CT Trails Day Weekend in years. With the additional events submitted for the online supplement, there were a total of 269 trail events in 143 towns to choose from. Although we are a small state in size, we are big on outdoor fun!

Thank you to all the trail maintenance volunteers, event organizers, leaders, sponsors, and participants who helped to make the 2014 celebration truly special. We hope to see you all again next year.
