Hiking / Backpacking Adventures

Chatfield Hollow State Park, Connecticut

Schreeder PondTaking advantage of what will likely be the only beautiful day in our Thanksgiving week in Connecticut, we went for a hike at Chatfield Hollow State Park in Killingworth, CT. It’s a great place for a hike. There are quite a few trails, at difficulty levels appropriate for everybody (including a road that is closed to cars during the off-season, so if you just want to go for a flat walk along the brook, you can). We hiked parts of the Lookout Trail and the Ridge Trail, which got our blood pumping and our legs a good workout.

Dave and JennWe ate our picnic lunch next to a covered bridge, then strolled over to check out the water wheel that has scenically remained part of the state park.

We also got to say hi to a couple of nice dogs, including a largish Yorkie and a big black dog about to celebrate her 13th birthday.

It was so nice to have an opportunity to hike through some wooded hills!
