Grab your spikes, snow shoes, or rugged boots. Pull on some cozy long underwear. Here are some local hikes and walks recommended by winter hikers.
Mostly Flat Trails
I’ve walked all of these in the summer and found them a wonderful scenic walk. There are some hilly spots and some are longer than others but overall the trail is mostly flat.
Colette Trail in Enfield is great for snow shoeing (especially the Bickell Brook side)
Hurricane Forest in Hartford, VT
The Rail trail of course, but this is mostly a walk than a hike.
More Hilly Trails
Beautiful views and woodsy wonder await you at on these winter hikes.
The Pogue trail at Marsh Billings National Historic Site
Moose Mountain in Etna
French’s Ledges in Meriden
I’ve never walked these.
Parcel 5 in Norwich is a 3 loop which you can shorten or lengthen with different connecting trails. Trailfinder considers this a challenging winter trail, others consider it easy with a few hills.
