I hiked part of the Appalachian Trail in Connecticut yesterday. It was an out and back hike which technically started on the NY/CT border. I found the trail on the “All Trails” app. You can find the hike map and information here – Appalachian Trail Hike. I’d recommend downloading that app. It has helped me not get lost on trails many times! The trail I did is called “Appalachian Trail: Hoyt Road to Bull’s Bridge.” It’s normally 8 1/2 miles but we lengthened it to 10 miles by adding extra hiking at Bull’s Bridge. The area of the hike near Bull’s Bridge is beyond beautiful. Bull’s Bridge is a wooden covered bridge in Kent, CT. It’s a popular hiking area with well marked trails.
Hiking stats: Appalachian Trail: Hoyt Road to Bull’s Bridge hike – 10 miles, 2,008 ft elevation gain, 1,034 calories burned. (Calories burned is obviously different for everyone.)
If you’re in the Connecticut area, I’d definitely recommend this hike!! Check out the photos below.
