This Hike Takes You To A Place Connecticut’s First Residents Left Behind

Native Americans inhabited the area that is now Connecticut long before the boats of European settlers ever arrived. Much of the evidence of their existence is long gone, but you can experience a place left behind by our first residents by taking a hike to Indian Rock Shelters. This short but fascinating trail belongs on your to-do list the next time you’re looking for an outdoor adventure.
