Come explore Penwood State Park atop the Metacomet Ridge. Our hike will begin and end at the Land Trust’s Stout Family Fields, which provides an alternate entrance to the State Park from the end of Stone Hill Road. We’ll enter Penwood to visit Lake Louise and the Pinnacle and take some of the lesser-known trails to and from the notch between Bloomfield and Simsbury. The 4.5 mile loop is moderate with a few hills, and leashed dogs are permitted. The rain date is Sunday, June 5.
The event is one of many in Bloomfield and around the state that are part of Connecticut Trails Day. Thousands of people from all backgrounds, ages, abilities, and interests come together with a simple, common purpose: to celebrate the many hiking, biking, paddling, letterboxing, and equestrian experiences Connecticut’s many trails have to offer!
