This hike will take you on a section of the Hop River Trail towards Williamantic. The Hop River Trail is an old railroad bed converted to a bike & walking trail. It is a beautiful place to visit. I have only been on the trail during the week, a few bikers and dog walkers around, I would imagine that on weekends it could get a little crowded. There are a number of GEOCaches ( in the area, all are fun to find. There area some nice views of the Hop River and some ponds along the trail. I didn't find to much litter (always pick it up), but I did find more dog droppings on the trail than I would expect. It never ceases to amaze me that people have this beautiful trail to walk their dogs, but then don't clean up after their them - shame on them! Happy trails, Tom (
