I love walking or riding my bicycle through the many trails that spread all over the state of Connecticut. There is so much to do and see that anyone will find it enjoyable. These trails are a photographer's dream because there is just so much beauty to behold and you challenge yourself to capture and share what you have seen and hope others will be enlivened by your efforts. I had often heard how beautiful the 48 mile long Farmington Canal Heritage Trail was so of course I had to see it for myself! Let me tell you, it did not disappoint! I was there at the end of October and the fall foliage was still very vibrant and the temperatures were quite chilly. I covered about 6-7 miles of the trail which took me through the rural towns of Granby and Suffield. My eyes worked overtime as they took in the woodlands, open fields with horses, farmhouses, plant life, birds, flowers and there were very nice people walking the trail to boot! My apologies that it is currently Spring and I am posting photos from the Fall of last year but I am in the process of catching up. I have only experienced about 12% of this trail and what I have seen so far is absolutely stunning! I can only hope that I can carve out some time to visit this trail again in the future. Check out my photos below to see the breathtaking views!
I hoped you enjoyed this small glimpse of the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail and that my photos will inspire you to visit as well.
