Other Trails

After a few years of CTMQ, I’ve decided to give this section it’s own header tab. I’ve come to learn that there are a lot of these types of “trails” and they deserve to be explored and documented. Many towns and college campuses have historic or architectural walks, there is an Art Trail, a Women’s Heritage Trail, a Wine Trail, and so on. A couple seem a bit muddled for different reasons but all should be completed one way or another.

I’ve bunched up the smaller and more mundane/local trails under the “Other Other Trails” heading below and as there are a ton of them (many as yet undiscovered), I’m not going to pretend I’ll get around to doing all of them. We’ll see.

I will not seek to complete the wholly commercial trails I’ve come across. Things like the Connecticut Garden and Landscape Trail or the much more fun Southeastern CT Sundae Drives Trail. Though I have a feeling we’ll be hitting a bunch of those ice cream spots.

Note: If you’re interested in those ice cream joints or the Connecticut Wine Trail, they are over in the Ingest section. And then there’s the Connecticut Carousel Trail which is somewhere in between and can be found here.

If you know of a trail or walk like the ones below, let me know. This page has been a mess for a couple years. I’m hoping to clean it up soon.
