CT: Litchfield County- New Milford (Biking)

Part of what I enjoy about road biking is having various destinations along the way to enjoy. I found just that when mapping out a route along the New Milford Barn Quilt trail.

Basically, different farm owners sign up to allow their home and their “barn quilt” to be part of a route to have them on display.

I very much enjoyed the ride of rolling hills throughout New Milford to capture some of these.

Fair warning however that some of the hills were quite steep both up and down so we did walk in a few spots. You could also navigate using the main route 202 but that’s quite a busy road with a narrow shoulder.

We started our route with a wonderful bite at White Horse Country Pub and a stop at the New Preston Falls. Here’s a link to the blog about the restaurant.


From there we road a little over a mile to the town of New Preston and saw the New Preston Falls.

We then traveled to Upland road where there are several barn quilts on display – 93, 55 and 44 Upland road respectively. We we were fortunate enough to see goats and bulls and even bumped into a practice session for an evening concert and Hunt Hill Farm (where I learned they also offer cooking lessons!).

We then continued to Wheaton road to find more! As we had afternoon plans elsewhere, from there we returned to White Horse but there are many more to be seen!

Here’s the link to the New Milford Barn Quilt route we used to create our journey with other destinations.
