Trail Finder

The Connecticut Trail Finder is the state’s go-to resource for discovering new trails across the state. CT Trail Finder

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.
