Excellent groomed single-track mountain bike trails with varying technical sections. Big thanks to NEMBA and local bikers caring for these trails. Great for trail running as well. Watch out for ATV'ers on access/fire trails.

Easy walk on trails. Perfect for families. There's restrooms at the start of the trail and another 1/2 way through the loop.

Pleasant, easy trail nestled within a commercial/residential area. Would consider it an out-and-back more than a loop as the White Trail loop continues on a paved residential road past the bridge. Take the Yellow Trail loop to get into the woods a bit more. It joins back up with White Trail for a nice trek

Appalachian Trail, Northwest Connecticut and Southwest Massachusetts

My wife and I took the dog for the 5.6 mile out-and-back hike from the AT parking lot on Under Mountain Road/Rt. 41 in Salisbury to the Lion's Head peak. It was a beautiful day and a walk that got the heart pumping with lots of elevation gain. There were two challenges. First, there was a fresh load of very slippery dry oak leaves covering much of the trail. SLIPPERY is the key word. Also, the blazes were sometimes few and far between, an especially challenging wrinkle when the trail itself is covered. In spite of that, the view form Lion's Head is worth every slip, near-trip, and sweat drop. Take a few hours, pack a sandwich, and go for it!

I did the section of the Appalachian that goes from the footbridge near Kent School to Caleb's Peak and back, which passes the ledges. Took about four hours including stopping for lunch. Would totally recommend- moderate hike with some lovely views of Kent and the surrounding valley. Perfect late fall hike.
