I'm working on completing the CT Metacomet section of the New England Trail. I haven't yet done the part north of Rt. 20, and really don't like the idea of a two-plus mile road walk to complete the CT portion (not fond of having to do the roadwalk parts in Berlin for that matter, either).
Is there a trail on the ridge parallel to the northern roadwalk? Any intel on this? I think I recall hearing it's a private landowner permission issue or maybe a development issue, but I'm not sure.
