…IN WHICH WE HONOR THE BEST HIKING CLUBS IN THE COUNTRY.
For such a small state—and one with routinely underrated hiking opportunities—Connecticut actually fields one of the largest, most active hiking clubs in the country. The 2,600-member Connecticut Hiking Alliance has ticked off more than 1,000 trips since 2012. The hikers meet up as many as four times a week for close-to-home day trips, weekend adventures to New Hampshire or Maine, and volunteer events on local trails. They wrap up every meeting with food and drink, and who could blame them for celebrating? Visit bit.do/ct-hiking-alliance to learn more.
