First section of the CT Appalachian Trail starting on the CT/NYborder at Hoyt Rd and ending at Bull's Bridge in Kent, CT. Climbs over Ten Mile Hill (el 1,000ft) and then skirts and crosses the Ten Mile River and then follows the west bank of the Housatonic river. Beautiful, easy trail with campsites.

The River Trail in New Milford, CT is a 5 mile one way or 10 mile out and back trail. The trail begins at the entrance of Sega Meadows Park on Boardman Road and continues through the park to River Road, where I follows the road and the Housatonic River to the center of the Gaylordsville section of New Milford. The park trail is a mix of soil and crushed gravel. River Road is unpaved and is mostly dirt and crushed gravel. The road was lightly traveled when I walked (only two cars and two bicycles for the almost 4 miles). The Walk itself was easy, but wear comfortable shoes because the crushed gravel is not the most ideal walking surface.

Nice hike! Small over look at top of mountain with spectacular views!
Nice place for lunch and to take in all the surrounding beauty!
That's what I love about the Appalachian trail you get the best of everything, inclines, descends, woods, and streams etc.

Magnificent and Moderate

Very wooded trail with hills and some overlooks, especially if you take the Herrick Trail Preserve loop. Most of walks have focused on the sections near the Housatonic River and 10 Mile area. Did the part from NY only once. This section is very well maintained and often guides and helpers are sitting out near Bulls Bridge. One of our favorite sections of the AT.
