Located south of Chatfield Hollow State Park in Killingworth, the Chatfield Trail travels through portions of the Cockaponset State Forest and Forster Pond State Park as well as private lands. The trail winds its way through a mixed forest and features large boulders, rocky ledges, babbling brooks, and passes the Fat Man Squeeze (a narrow vertical crack in a cliff). Cliffs and rocky, uneven terrain make this trail a fun challenge.

Easy trail, walked the white trail circle, plenty of fun but not the breathtaking views I have experienced from other local hikes.
