A converted forest work road to hiking trail (blue/red blaze) terminated by green gates on Guerdat Road and Winsted Rd.

Overview

State of CT requires dogs to be leashed but low volume in the area means most people don't.
Features: -none- [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Leashed

Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

While this trail carries blue/red blazes and connects to CFPA's John Muir trail it is bike legal.

Description [Suggest Changes]

This old forest work road offers a small parking area at the bottom. Torrington Trails Network did a nice job converting it into a relatively smooth, multi-use trail to connect the Sue Grossman Greenway on the Winsted Road to the hike-only John Muir Trail that runs from Sunnybrook to Burr Pond.

Use Buttrick to reconnect to the Burr/Paugnut Main Loop after riding down Whipping Post. It's a steady grind up (maybe 0.4 miles) but mostly on reclaimed asphalt.
