Connecticut Trails Weekend: Local Events

Posted on May 17, 2019 by admin


Connecticut is the proud host of the largest National Trails Day grassroots celebration in the nation! On the first weekend in June, the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) brings together about 250 volunteers to lead events like hiking, biking, paddling, letterboxing, trail work parties, equestrian rides, and trail experiences of all kinds to get Connecticut residents outside and away from household chores, television, and the internet for a day.


I encourage you and your family to get outside and participate in Connecticut Trails Weekend with CFPA! Enjoy a sense of community, tradition and stewardship for the environment.
