Paddle The Connecticut River For A One-Of-A-Kind Connecticut Adventure

Here at Only In Your State, we absolutely love trails in Connecticut. We regularly feature wooded hikes through the Nutmeg State’s forests, and paved trails through our wonderful parks. But if you’re looking for the ultimate warm weather adventure, does it get any better than following a water trail? If you think about it, that’s basically what a river is… and when it comes to rivers in Connecticut, the mighty Connecticut River is king. This 406-mile body of water that shares our state’s name is the longest river in New England. While you may not be quite up for paddling the entirety of the river, picking a small portion and doing a loop in a kayak or canoe is an absolute blast and a great way to enjoy the scenery and get some exercise at the same time.

If you’d like to find out more about the Connecticut River Paddlers’ Trail, check out the group’s website. There are maps showing the various access points and campsites.
