Metacomet

Hike the Metacomet Trail

The Metcomet Trail is one of Connecticut’s blue blaze trails maintained by the Connecticut Forest and Park Association.  It runs 62.3 miles from Berlin north to the Massachusetts border in Suffield.  It features dramatic views, two of Connecticut’s stone towers, and some of the state’s best hiking.

I have only hiked sections of the Metacomet Trail so this is an incomplete guide.
