10 miles of hiking • 1000' elevation gain •
I was vacationing in Chester CT for a few days and had a chance to go on a nice New England forest hike every morning. I would choose a different section of the forest for each walk. Solitude on every single hike (all weekdays), and easy bushwacking. The fall colors were terrific and it was interesting to walk around in the eastern forest- very few conifers!
