CT: Litchfield County- Salisbury- Farmington Canal Northern

Part of the Farmington Canal trail, this is considered the northern most portion. I ride it in sections and there’s always so much to see and do I come back and vary it a bit.

Unfortunately due to the pandemic, the flower bridge no longer has flowers to minimize the attention. I came here several years ago to find it adorned with potted flowering plants. I hope to return one day soon to find the same. However, the nearby lot is a good place to commence this portion of the ride.

This is likely one of the easiest trail rail rides I’ve been on. Very flat, wide and I felt no true grade in either direction.

There were also several opportunities to pause and take in the grandiosity of the farm land around.

Fortunately I hooked onto a few cyclists that were riding at a descent but not overwhelming pace which I leveraged to practice for some upcoming rides.

This trail takes you right up to the Massachusetts border. Can’t wait to continue on to learn of their trails as well.

This ride was about 15/30 miles out and back. Below is the link to my write up on the Southern section.
