The Metacomet section of the New England Trail will be temporarily closed between Wintonbury Rd and Mountain Rd (just north of Penwood State Park). Eversource will be conducting clearing work and installing new utility poles on the powerline in this section. Please do not circumvent closure signs or approach equipment. This closure is expected to last through March 2021.
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.
