More Maps and Info
The blue-blazed Shenipsit Trail is a 60 mile trail that connects 11 towns and links numerous state, municipal, and conservation open space lands. Locally, the trail traverses the Glastonbury highlands through parts of the Meshomasic State Forest, Town of Manchester watershed lands, Kongscut Land Trust preserves and Case Mountain Park. The Shenipsit Trail is part of the extensive 825-mile Blue-Blaze Hiking Trail System maintained by volunteers of the Connecticut Forest and Park Association. An excellent guide to the entire system is the Connecticut Walk Book. The Shenipsit Trail is moderately difficult in places and is intended for hikers rather than strollers.
