Family Hike on Higby Trail portion of the New England National Scenic Trail

April 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT

We will meet at the hiker parking lot on Rt. 66w in Middlefield at 10 a.m. for this family hike on the Higby Trail portion of the New England National Scenic Trail (NET). We will walk about four miles from the trailhead to Mt. Higby, returning the way we came. There are some rock scrambles and terrific views from the trap rock ledges overlooking I-91. This hike is jointly listed with the Connecticut Forest and Park Association (CFPA) in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Scenic Trails Act. It also qualifies as part of CFPA’s NET Hike 50 Challenge Program. Contact the leader at[masked] or [masked] to register or for further information.
