Only walked a small portion. Friendly passersby, paved trail, and fall foliage. Porta potties were locked.

The directions here take you to the Stop and Shop parking lot in Hamden. It’s actually not the Farmington Canal section, but rather the New Haven Northampton section according to the signs at every road crossing. This section is approx 7 miles of asphalt approx 12 feet wide running along a creek and suburbia. It was very clean and well maintained, zero litter, etc. The reason for 4 stars is mountain biking on asphalt can become boring. It feels more A to B rather than exploring nature trails though there are some C options with local businesses. There’s a couple of pub style restaurants along the way with bike racks. There’s also Cheshire Cycle shop. There’s some feeling of being out in a forest with nature but definitely not a lot as it’s rather commercial/residential. There were a few non-asphalt paths that ran along the asphalt path adding a little flair which was a nice touch. It goes from the strip mall sections of Hamden up to Quinnipiac University York entrance to the Farmington pathway. This trail is part of the greenway project that will eventually go from Maine to Key West, Florida. This is along an old railroad line from the 19th century, there’s a few historical signs along the way. The construction of the bridges along the waterways is first class engineering. Locals said it goes all the way up to Northampton Mass while another local said it goes to Newington CT. Overall, a good cardio workout that’s along the easy to moderate level depending on your condition, but it was too nestled into suburbia for me. I’ll definitely check out the Farmington part which started on Mount Stanford Rd and Brooksvale Ave in I believe Cheshire and there may be parking at Brooksvale Park.

Bike it whenever I can. Even better when Sleeping Giant State Park is open to add a hike.
