  • We've been creating and maintaining the Blue-Blazed Trails in Connecticut for 90 years. It's time to celebrate! And what better way celebrate than taking a hike. Join us for CFPA's Fall Hike Series.
  • On July 22nd, the General Assembly met but did not address its bonding priorities. Please take action to encourage your Legislators to support at least $3 million in bonding for recreational trails before they meet this fall!

    There's nothing like hiking in autumn! And there's nothing like visiting a local craft brewer after. Check out our suggestions for both the view and the brew.
Want to know more about CT Trails Day? What better way than to see photos of the events. Enjoy! Attend an event next year and maybe your photo will make it to the gallery.
