Home base: Wethersfield, CT

Miles: I’m working towards hiking the entire trail and completed CT Sections 2-7, CT 15-16, CT 21, and MA 1-6 as out and back hikes.

Trail Story: 

I learned about the New England Trail and this challenge in 2020 and completed the Hike 50 challenge. When the Hike 100 challenge was announced for 2021, I set that as my new goal with a long-term plan to section hike the entire trail. To date, I have 22/40 sections under my belt! I love having a local trail with many beautiful places I can hike. The trail offers a variety of terrain and scenery and motivates me to get out of the house and stay active!
