Best Areas for Hiking in Connecticut

Yes, it’s summer, and there is no better time of year to be out and about. A lot of us assume that we have to engage in a grand activity like a transcontinental vacation in order to truly enjoy summer, but our Connecticut airport shuttle service is here to assure you that this is a misconception. There are numerous local activities you can engage in during summer that can be just as fun, not to mention cheaper. In this post we want to recommend hiking; get out of the house and gather the guys for an adventure; enjoy nature, discover beautiful landscapes, and uncover hidden gems right in your backyard.

Consider our Connecticut car service for all your transportation need to any one of the following pristine hiking trails around Connecticut. You will be walking long distances and you need to preserve as much energy as you can on your way there, you will also want to sit back and relax on your way back, so let us handle all the driving and navigation on your day out. We will drop you off at a hiking location of your choice, and we will be there to drive you and the gang safely back home after the experience.

Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center

Head over to Mystic any day between 9 am and 5 pm and enjoy a 10-mile long trail at the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center. The trail leads you through a variety of landscapes and habitats including forests and meadows. This nature center has been focused on the education and conservation of natural habitats for almost a century now. If you are interested in environmental conservation, you may want to check out their website and plan your visit for a day when they are hosting a conservation event. The trails at Denison are well-marked and open for free public use.

Lantern Hill Trail

The Lantern Hill Trail is located in North Stonington; the trail leads you up a 500-foot climb that is fairly difficult to hike, so prepare yourself mentally before challenging this hill. Lantern Hill Trail allows visitors to tag their pets along as long as they are on a leash. The climb may be challenging, but it is worth it; once you are at the top you will enjoy a view of all of North Stonington and Ledyard, which is quite an experience on its own. Additionally, there are other trails that link up with Lantern Hill if you are feeling adventurous; these trails lead to Hopkinton town in Rhode Island.

Tunxis Hiking Trails/Indian Council Caves Trail/Beaver Brook Hiking Trail

Visit Barkhamsted township and try out these Hiking Trails. Some of the trails are loops, others are back and forth trails, and on other trails you begin at one point and come out at another. Popular trails include the Tunxis Trails, the Indian Council Caves Trail, and the Beaver Brook Trail. All trails are roughly two miles each, so if you arrive early you might have a chance to explore several, or even all of them.
