About the Author:

THE CONNECTICUT FOREST & PARK ASSOCIATION (CFPA) is the first private, nonprofit, member-based organization established in Connecticut, and the founder and maintainer of over 825 miles of Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails. In 1929, CFPA’s Trails Committee proposed a radical idea—establish and maintain hundreds of miles of walking trails by a workforce of volunteers organized and trained by CFPA. Now, 90 years later, this idea is still being carried forward by volunteers, members, partners, CFPA staff, and many landowners who have joined forces over time to maintain, improve, and expand the “Blue Trails.” CFPA’s mission is to connect people to the land in order to protect forests, parks, and trails for current and future generations to enjoy.

Review:

“There are more than 825 miles of Connecticut Forest & Park Association Blue-Blazed Trails across Connecticut. That’s 825 miles of trails you can’t get lost on if you have the Connecticut Walk Book as your guide. That’s 825 miles of trails you will never have to ask directions for. I still have my frayed and tattered copy my dad gave me so many years ago. The guide is a handy way for newcomers and old-timers alike to explore the state by making their own loop trails or out-and-back paths. Don’t go into the natural world without it.” (Peter Marteka, Hartford Courant Staff Writer/Nature Columnist)

“The Connecticut Walk Book is the one essential guide for hikers. Great maps and concise, clear, accurate text give you everything you need to explore the state's wonderful network of major trails, more than 800 miles of them. It is truly a must-have.” (Steve Grant, longtime Connecticut nature writer)

“Whether you aim to hike, walk, amble, jog, meander, scamper or scramble, the Connecticut Walk Book will help you set your feet on the right path. Filled with detailed descriptions and directions to the 900 miles of blue-blazed trails across the state, this 20-year anniversary edition should become a well-worn guidebook in the libraries of everyone who values time outdoors and the joy of discovering the wealth of natural riches in this small state.” (Judy Benson, The Day)
