The Appalachian Trail travels 52 miles in Connecticut. Most of the AT in the state follows the ridges to the west of the Housatonic River Valley and to the east of the Taconic Mountains. Campfires are prohibited along the AT in Connecticut and camping is allowed only at designated sites.
Some sections of the AT in the state follow along the banks of rivers, with some steep challenging climbs thrown in. There is even a wheel chair accessible section of the Appalachian Trail near Falls Village. The trail ascends above 2000 feet in elevation in Connecticut for the first time along the trail since in Pennsylvania.
There are a number of memorable places along the AT in Connecticut including Ten Mile Hill, Ten Mile River, Indian Rocks, Saint John Ledges, Mount Easter, Great Falls, Prospect Mountain, Rand's View, Billy's View, Lions Head and Bear Mountain. Use the links above to explore different sections of the AT in Connecticut. Look below for a detailed description of key points along the Appalachian Trail in Connecticut.
