Shelton Rec Trail is a 2.3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Shelton, CT. The trail is rated as moderate offers a number of activity options.
A good trail for walking. A decent amount of inclines but not too many.
Good running trail, lots of slope and curves. Convenient if you work or live in Shelton.
Beautiful trail in my home town. Trail details kind of incorrect. Paved trail with gravel one way is about 4 miles. Rough pavement is ~14 miles. Half the gravel trail has houses around, which is kind of safe for family with kids. I will not suggest road and hybrid bike here.
Beautiful, quiet, superbly maintained. Varied ecosystems and wildlife. You can use the handicapped access trails (wide gravel) or the rougher unimproved trails. The footing is great on the gravel trails, but the rougher trails are less traveled. My dog and I walk there a few times a week and always see something new and wonderful.
This trail is awesome, very challenging for trail running, but I enjoy that challenge, its a very scenic run in some areas of the trail, especially when you get close to the back side of the reservoir near the dog park in Shelton.
