Date completed: 11/28/2021

Home base: Collinsville, CT

Miles: I hiked 50 miles in sections with my human Mat, throughout 2021. Most of these hikes were in CT, but I enjoyed hiking on the trail with him a couple of times in Massachusetts too. We finished my 50 mile goal with a fall foliage hike together in October.

Describe the NET: Quirky, challenging, fun, beautiful, and full of various plants to smell.

What do you love about the NET? I take after my dad and love long-distance hiking trails so I am happy there is another one that is nationally designated in the state like the AT. I love that it is close to home too. I’d rather be out on the trail than in the car =).

Advice for NET Hikers: Tell your human that you want to get out and see the state through this beautiful trail. Make sure they bring enough treats, water, and a first aid kit. Also, remind them to bring your harness and leash so that you both can practice good LNT.

Trail Story: 

I love the NET and spending time on it with my human. I enjoy stopping to appreciate nature, smelling plants and taking in the views. I surprise him every time we get out there together!
