Home base: Middletown, CT
Miles: Section hiked the Menunkatuck trail, section hiked for a total of over 50 miles on the Metacomet trail and 40+ of the Mattabassett trail.
Describe the NET: Mostly ridge walking with lots of good views. Occasional road walking.
What do you love about the NET? The fact that you can be fairly far away from roads despite being in CT.
Advice for NET Hikers: Get a pair of good, waterproof boots.
Any hike on the NET is good. The best thing is that they drain well so you can safely get out to them quickly after the rain. The intersection of the Matt & then Menunkatuck is one of my favorites.
