Quinebaug Trail

Hike the Quinebaug Trail

The blue blaze Quinebaug Trail runs 8.1 miles from Plainfield southwest to Griswold passing quiet forest, dirt bike trails, rocky ledges, and mill ruins along the way.

The trail is one of the lesser traveled of the blue blaze system and overlaps significantly with the Enduro Trail that runs through Pachaug State Forest so you will likely pass at least a couple dirt bikes or ATVs

I hiked the length of the trail in January 2023.

This trail was originally blazed sometime in the mid to late 1960s and has largely remained unchanged over that time.
