The Metacomet Trail, between Wintonbury Rd (north end of Penwood State Park) and Mountain Rd in Tarriffville, will be closed from Aug 24- early November. Eversource will be conducting work on the powerline along the ridgeline in this section and trail access will be closed. Please plan accordingly.
A portion of the blue/red blazed Metacomet Loop Trail (previously the "Hatchery Brook Trail") has been relocated between Rt 71 and Bicentennial Park. Additionally, the portion of the trail in the Hatchery Brook Conservation Area has been relocated and no longer begins at the community garden on Orchard Rd. Please see our interactive trail map for the trail's current location.
The Metacomet Trail, between Rt 6 and Mountain Rd in Farmington, has been relocated off of Poplar Hill Rd. The trail now travels through the woods on Town and private properties to connect the hiker to Mountain Rd.
