Since moving to Connecticut, hiking has become one of our favorite weekend excursions for the family. There are hundreds of trails to explore and in these Quarantine Times, these weekend adventures have become our outlet to get out and get moving. You can read about the start of the series HERE.
This past weekend we decided to venture out a bit farther from home and visit a trail we had never been to before. Not really caring which we went to, I left the choosing to my husband and didn’t know where we were heading until we got there. He ended up choosing the Zoar Trail in Paugussett State Forest. Y’all, the weather was perfect, the crowds were sparse, and there were water views for most of the walk. I was in heaven.
The trail itself was a mix of steady climbs and flat trails, which kept us on our toes. Some of the trail was a bit more narrow for my liking, especially with the kids in tow, but for the most part, it wasn’t anything too dramatic. The only issue came when we did run into others as there wasn’t really anywhere to “pull over” except into the denser parts of the forest. No biggie though- we all made it just fine. 🙂
