Housatonic River Walk: Appalachian Trail is a 10.6 mile out and back trail located near Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking.
Easy and flat but the nats and mosquitos made this 5 mile stretch of our 10 mile AT hike rather annoying... Bring your head net!! Some nice river views and some very cool wild flower pastures with peaks in the background. Saw a beaver and a couple herons for wild life.
Beautiful 10 mile hike I use with my scout troop for first time 10 milers. We saw an osprey this time.
Beautiful trail.. Not much elevation.
Started on River Road in Kent, which is a dirt road that dead ends at a gate and the trail head. Walked about two miles and then turned and came back. It is a very nice section of the Appalachian trail that follows the Housatonic River. The trail here is wide and very easy to walk. The river is wide and shallow. Saw many people on the trail, some fishing, some hiking, and some thru-hikers of the AT. Beautiful scenery
