Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails
Dear Trail User:
Dreaming of trails in the middle of winter? Come and join a like-minded group for our Winter Trails Workshop. This workshop is designed for those new to trail work. Subjects will include GPS/GIS, trail tool safety, trail blazing and more. Weather permitting we’ll see theory put into practice on the CFPA’s Demonstration Forest Trail at lunch time. Participants should bring their lunch and appropriate clothing for the lunchtime activity. Coffee, donuts, and lunchtime beverages provided.
This workshop is FREE and open to all, but CFPA volunteers will have preference. Seating is limited so pre-registration is required. To register, contact CFPA at 860-346-2372 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information, contact workshop leader Rob Butterworth at 860-526-3210. Bad weather cancels workshop, no snow date.
It just got easier to find the New England Trail (NET). Thanks to CFPA, the NET now has an interactive map, which outlines the trail's basic route.
Dust off your favorite hiking shoes and grab your water bottle. This year's celebration will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 5 and 6, as part of National Trails Day. The theme is "Find Your Happy Place," which shouldn't be hard to do considering more than 160 Trails Day events are scheduled in 88 towns across Connecticut. Don't miss this opportunity to discover new places and experience the outdoors with family, friends, and neighbors. Follow the link below to find an event that is just right for you.
