Off the Beaten Path: Scovill Trails

Take a hike! Our newest feature on The Rockfall Foundation's Off the Beaten Path blog takes you to the Scovill Trails in Middletown. With 3 trails accessed from the same parking lot, you get an amazing assortment of sites and terrain. Explore woodlands that emerge onto a beach, visit an abandoned beaver pond, traverse a 19th century quarry, and reach beautiful views with a glimpse of the Connecticut River. Learn more and find step-by-step instructions for these hikes on our blog: https://wp.me/paqKMt-3kT

The leaves have changed fast. The green foliage photos in this blog are from 9/16 and the fall foliage ones are from 9/29. Get outdoors and enjoy fall while it lasts!
