The Appalachian Trail

       The Appalachian Trail is 2,174 miles long in a corridor about 1000 feet wide. It stretches from Springer Mountain, GA to Mt. Katahdin, ME and passes through 14 states. The Connecticut section of the Appalachian Trail, from the NY State line to the brook crossing at Sages Ravine is maintained by volunteers from the Connecticut Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club. All hikers are asked to follow guidelines set forward by the club and respect the rights of private landowners adjacent to the trail. By clicking on this link one can print a map of the sections passing through Salisbury, Falls Village, West Cornwall, Cornwall Bridge and Kent, CT.

 

Please observe the following guidelines:

  • Before starting out leave a detailed plan of your hike with a responsible friend or relative.
  • Travel in groups of 25 or less and camp in groups of 10 or less
  • Park and camp only in designated areas indicated on site map.
  • Keep the trail and trail heads free of litter. Carry out and home what you carry in.
  • Treat or filter all drinking water. When washing your dishes or yourself never contaminate the water source.
  • Keep pets under control at all times.
  • State and Federal Law prohibits vehicles on the trail. Foot travel only.
  • Leave the flowers, plants and trees for the enjoyment of hikers who follow you. Take only photos-leave only footprints.
