Celebrate the Connection of the Saugatuck and Aspetuck Hiking Trails on October 28th

On October 28, 2014, the public is invited to join trail project partners to celebrate the 5-mile extension project joining the Saugatuck and Aspetuck trails – a connection that will provide hikers, joggers and others a continuous 18-mile long trail system in the heart of Fairfield County, Connecticut.

Aquarion Water Company, the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, The Nature Conservancy and the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) collaborated on the trail extension.

The Connecticut Forest and Park Association and over 120 volunteers contributed more than 1,500 hours toward completing the trail.

The trail system passes through the towns of Newtown, Weston, Easton and Redding in Centennial Watershed State Forest– a 15,000-acre land protection project collectively owned and managed by Aquarion Water Company, the Connecticut DEEP and The Nature Conservancy.
