Mattabesett Trail Route 68 to Route 66 Beseck Ridge
by CTTrail on Dec 13, 2008
Wallingford, Durham, Middlefield, Meriden, Connecticut, United States
Hiking | 5.6 miles (20 miles away)
From Route 66 the trail ascends gradually toward Beseck Ridge with views to the South and Southeast. As you reach the Ridge, long vistas across the Quinnipiac Valley come into view. They continue for most of the hike. The views across the valley are varied, with forests, subdivisions, factories, and Black Pond in sight against a backdrop of the far side of the Quinnipiac Valley and the Hanging Hills of Meriden. Although...

Hike to Bear Rock
by bobrich on Feb 28, 2009
Connecticut, United States
Hiking | 1.2 miles (21 miles away)
We wanted a short relatively easy hike, chose this hike from AMC'S Best Day Hikes in Connecticut. Even though the temperature was about 40, it felt colder due to no sun and a bit of a breeze. The hike was easy, but we missed the easy routes to the two scenic viewpoints. The book mentioned the Mountain Laurel and there was indeed plenty. We both want to go back to see if...

Mattabesett Trail - Mt Higby - Rt 66 to Country Club Road
by scotths on May 02, 2011
Beseck Lake, Connecticut, United States
Hiking | 7.8 miles (16.0 miles away)
In this hike I follow the blue blazed Mattabesset Trail from Route 66 to Country Club road. In addition I follow 2 (one very short, one longer) side trails that lead to parking areas. The trail offers fantastic views of the surrounding area from numerous viewpoints along the rocky ridge. The trial starts next to New Guida’s diner at the intersection of route 66 and 147 where a crosswalk is provided for...

Mattabesett Trail – Route 17 to Howd Road Pistapaug Pond
by CTTrail on Dec 09, 2008
Durham, Connecticut, United States
Hiking | 1.9 miles (23 miles away)
After crossing a beautiful little waterfall a few yards uphill from Route 17, this segment of the trail climbs up, over and along Pistapaug Mountain. The 400 foot ascent is moderate, with no exciting scrambles. Views of Pistapaug Pond appear as you reach the top. Views of the pond gradually expand and improve. Farms, horse corrals, large houses and water company land across the lake are visible through the trees. In some...

Heublein Tower via Metacomet Trail

Bloomfield, Connecticut, US
Hiking | 5.3 miles (5.5 miles away)
The hike takes place on the light blue blazed Metacomet Trail, from Route 44 to Route 185, a distance of 5.3 miles. The main attraction is Heublein Tower, which offers fine views, restrooms and picnic tables. I hiked it both directions, but only clocked it one way.  There is ample parking on Route 44, I used the MDC parking lot for Reservoir #6, although there is also a parking lot on the...

Metacomet from Rte 4 to Rte 44
by TomArmistead on Apr 22, 2014
Farmington, Connecticut, United States
Hiking | 8.6 miles (5.8 miles away)
I hiked from 44 to 4 and back, but didn't start clocking the trip until the point marked "Go." It's about 6.5 miles between the two roads. There is a commuter parking lot across the road at Rte 4. There is also room for parking at the side of the road near the trail head as shown in photos. The return trip starts in the Bancroft Memorial, 23 acres donated by Harold and...

Hiking | 3.6 miles (6.3 miles away)
One of the many loop trails off of the Hockanum River. It's simple but one of my favorites. There is one really nice ammo box used for geocaching that is off this trail that you can see I went off too.The only reason it took so long was that we had a bee incident, everyone is OK :-)
