Connecticut Trails Day 2021

Connecticut Trails Day 2021 will be celebrated Saturday and Sunday, June 5th and 6th.

CT Trails Day is organized in conjunction with National Trails Day.

If there was ever a time to celebrate our amazing Connecticut trails, 2021 is it!

This year’s Trails Day will be different, but the spirit will be the same. We are committed to having a SAFE and FUN weekend on June 5 & 6.

Please review these NEW Participant Safety Guidelines to learn what you and your family can expect for Trails Day this year. Please don’t forget your mask, it will be important to have if/when social distancing is not possible at your event.

Our Trails Day Directory of Events features over 180 great events in the state.

Many of the locations are in the Litchfield County area.

Participant registration will open on May 20 and will close at 9pm the night before the event.

Trails Day is a two-day national event on the first weekend in June every year. It is a great time to pay tribute to all the wonderful trails our country has to offer. Trails and open spaces have become the places to escape to and enjoy when we need fresh air, a place to be inspired and to connect with our natural world.

Some local hikes of interest include the Torrington Trails Network hike Sunday at 10:00 am starting at The John Toto Sports Complex off Perkins Street. Log in at the Torrington Trails network Northeast CT YMCA or call 860 482-3952 to register.

Also at 10:00 am Sunday the Winchester Land Trust will celebrate Trails Day with a hike at the Houlihan Woods/Michael Giordano tribute area, 241 South Road.

Also the Norfolk Land Trust will sponsor an nature walk Sunday. Meet at 9:00 am at the Pine Mountain trail head off Grantville Road.

All three hikes are 1.5 – 2 miles long.
