    Default Northern-most section of trail from West Suffield to Mass. line completed!

    We finally got approval from a homeowner to complete the trail in CT to the Rising Corners Rd intersection. The new trail was cut in on Friday, 5/17/2013. The 2+mile road walk can now be skipped.

    Thanks for this news, Eureka. I'm almost done with the Metacomet section - need a couple miles south of that road walk and am happy to hear I don't need to do the northern road walk, but rather can walk in the woods. How are the views on that section? I still also lack the southernmost end in Berlin from Chamberlain Highway to the Turnpike, much of which, too, is a road walk. At least the northern one's gone!
    The more miles, the merrier!

    There are a couple of views. We had the last 1/2 mile new section marked but then a homeowner found that it went of their property alittle so we are in the process of getting it moved a little but you can still get through. Once the final trail is finalized, I'll re-blaze. Enjoy!
