This is another section hike of the Tunxis Trail and is an intermediate hike. We will hike from Hotchkiss Road in Burlington to Rt 202 in New Hartford. The trail makes use of a number of woods roads near the Nepaug Reservoir. This hike will be about 4.3 miles in length. It is a section hike so will all meet at the end location and take a few cars to the beginning on Hotchkiss Road.
We are getting into spring and you should be prepared for bugs. Ticks are always a problem and black flies will soon be out. A repellant with DEET is effective and correct clothing can help.
Meeting Location: Nepaug State Forest entrance, Rt 202, New Hartford. From the junction of Rt 44 and Rt 202 in Canton, travel west 3.0 miles on Rt 202 to the Nepaug State Forest entrance. There is parking on both sides of the road.
Apres-Hike: As a departure from the norm, I am going to set the Apres-hike location. There is a very nice vineyard just a few miles west of the end point. Bring a picnic or bring a snack to share for the Apres-Outing. Here's a link to their site;
