We would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we recreate is the territory of the Mohegan, Mashantucket Pequot, Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke, Golden Hill Paugussett, Nipmuc, and Lenape Peoples, who have stewarded this land throughout the generations. We thank them for their strength and resilience in protecting this land, and aspire to uphold our responsibilities according to their example.

We are confident that Connecticut Trail Finder will become your go-to resource for discovering new trails in your backyard and across the state.
Why? Because every trail page on Connecticut Trail Finder has been vetted and approved by the people who know it best, the trail managers. Whether it is a state park, a town trail, a land trust preserve or a national treasure like the Appalachian Trail, the information we provide on the website comes right from the volunteers, trail stewards and park rangers who have on-the-ground knowledge of each trail system.
Our goal is to share all trails that are open to the public throughout the state of Connecticut, but we aren’t just a list of trails. We have set up the site so you can find and track all the information you need to plan safe and fun adventures outdoors.
We are actively working with trail managers to add trails every week. If you're a trail manager and want to add your trail,
We are also working to connect interested local businesses with trail users who are looking for places to eat, stay or fix their bicycles. Stay tuned for our Trailside Services map, coming soon!
Do you enjoy connecting to other outdoor enthusiasts when you are outside? Soon we will be adding a statewide outdoor recreation events calendar. Check back soon for more information!
Keep visiting CT Trail Finder to see what we're up to, and share with us what you're up to via comments, photos, and more!
