I sat down and poured a drink and low and behold the Connecticut Walk Book was open to page 51, The Housatonic Range Trail. The trail Starts in Gaylordsville and travels 6.3 miles south to the terminus on the Candlewood Mountain summit. I decided to give the trail a shot.
At 730am i arrived at the Tory's Cave parking area off Rt 7. The parking area is located across the road from some good river smallie fishing! The trail is Unique to say the least! It travels through woods, a housing development, roads, swamps, and ledges. At times the trail goes through peoples backyards. You will feel a little uneasy, and think "no way can this be right", but it is. I did not film any of the areas in backyards or take pics out of respect and privacy of the residents, but i recommend hiking the trail! The route I took, was about 8 miles, and challenging is spots. I am glad I got back when i did because it got hot. I am off tomorrow, and fishing is the plan.
