The One Spot In Connecticut That’s Basically Heaven On Earth
So what makes a place heaven on earth? How about sweeping views that make you feel like you’re on the edge of the world, a lush natural surrounding that’s popping with vibrant colors, and even some waterfront views. Pistol Creek has all that and more!
Located in Berlin, Pistol Creek is a lush nature park with 3 paved trails.
Walk along Spruce Brook to hear the calming sounds of rushing water as you're enveloped by quiet. The only thing you'll hear is the brook and the chirping of birds.
The creek is a gorgeous sight in every season, and visitors are known to enjoy using this particular spot for personal reflection. But the escape this park allows is just the beginning of its allure.
The marsh is a deep green, spotted with flowers. But it's also brimming over with life.
You just have to look closely!
The paved paths make for an easy terrain, and include these small wooden bridges to lead you deep into the park. At 3.2 miles, the South Path Loop is the longest trail (and the most fun)!
The explorer in you won't be able to resist following the twists and turns.
But if you step off the beaten path you're sure to find some interesting things. There's the lone bench sitting amongst the grass...
An old well peeking out from the bush...
And the long abandoned farm equipment, a pile of twisted metal being devoured by the land.
Everywhere you turn there are stunning views and hidden sights, just waiting to be uncovered.
Can you hear the trails calling your name?
Get to the trail using 600 Spruce Brook Road, Berlin CT in your GPS and park in the YMCA lot. You will need to cross the street to enter the park area.
Pistol Creek isn’t the only edge in Connecticut you’ll enjoy. Visit this
Hidden Peninsula for more spectacular views. Who knows what you might discover!
