Hi all .. I am also in Winsted and have been walking from my place to the Lake and back at least 3 times a week. It can be a very challenging walk since it is so hilly but I really enjoy the scenery. I am looking forward to the cooler fall weather but not happy the winter will be here before we know it so I definitely want to get some serious walking in before the snow starts to fall. Best wishes to all... Suzanne

The Boardwalk I was referring to is in Litchfield (but I am not sure of its proper name)
I travel all over the area these days with my business partner cleaning homes. If you would like to get together for a walk let me know and we will see about setting it up.

Hi,

I am from Gaylordville (in between New Milford and Kent)... kind of far from you guys so not sure I could meet for hikes and all but it would be neat to be a part of a group that live in the same region.

My son takes voice in Lakeville, and both of my children have been in plays or audtioned for Sharon TriArts so I do make that drive often but any further and I am not sure I could fit it in my day.

When you say the Boardwalk are you talking about White Memorial Park?

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!! emoticon

Do you mean the "Boardwalk"? It is a lovely place to walk with a raised walkway around a large pond and wetlands.
I go to the Boardwalk every year with my Finance and dog to fish and walk and enjoy the outdoors.
If that isn't the place you mean you have my curiosity up.

How has everyone been? Went past the Mohawk forest the other day and thought of you all. We met friends in Litchfield for lunch and they took us to a park just north of downtown that is beautiful and has fields of walking paths. What a great day it was for a walk around there. Does anyone know where I mean? I can't remember the name of it and it is unmarked from the road. A woman owned it and when she passed away she left it to be a park.

I found another hiking place that I really want to try and it's pet friendly too!

Sleeping Giant State Park
200 Mount Carmel Avenue
Hamden, CT

Two miles of mountaintop resembling a large man lying in repose, the "sleeping giant", is a popular feature of the south central Connecticut skyline. A 1 1/2 mile scenic trail leads to the stone observation tower on the peak of Mt. Carmel which provides an excellent view of Long Island Sound and the New Haven area.

Looking at the map it looks like that would be just about halfway. Have to check out the trails. I'm not up for anything too strenuous yet. But I need to get in shape. Heading to Mt. Desert Island in Maine for a week in June. We hope to do some hikes there although between my husband's bone spurs and my ailments we may not do too much. :-)

Sounds like a plan to me. I'd love to car pool and meet up with Susan.

Sorry that it took me so long to get back Susan. I was looking for hiking places in between us and there is a Mohawk Mountain State Park in Cornwall, CT. I've never been there but we can Google it to find out if we're interested.

Cindy we can car pool if you'd like.

Susan,
there are a few places that we can try for a walk that is between us. When I get back up to walking condition we can discuss which ones we want to try first. I'll be looking through my maps to find as many of them as I can in the mean time.

Cindy, you're in Winsted? That's great! Have you tried out the trail from Winsted to Torrington? I walked it yesterday for the very first time and it's wonderful. Let me know if you want to get together sometime to walk. I'll meet you over there.

I was looking on Google maps and Winsted is about an hour from Amenia. Maybe we could meet somewhere in the middle. Any suggestions?

Hi Susan & Cindy,

I'm in Winsted, CT which is almost a 1 hr drive away from you Susan. I am so interested in finding hiking buddies besides my canine pals.

Have you hiked Alander Mountain? It's great 3-1/2 miles to the top. Check out the pics in my gallery.

I recently entered CT trails that are pet friendly in my GPS so I'm ready to go.

Hi Cindy and all! I actually live in Amenia, NY which is near Sharon, CT. I would love to get together with someone for walking. We have the Harlem Valley Rail Trail right here. Anyone else interested? Where is everyone else from?

I hope that having a group for the NW corner of CT will help those of us that live here join together and form walking groups and other activities to help us on our way to a healthier lifestyle.

I am always reachable by spark mail or you can post on my spark page.

Welcome to the team!
Cindy O.
