The Mohawk Trail
Art and Mavis Cross were the original inspiration for our exploration of the Mohawk Trail.  It has taken many years for us to "go the distance", but you can cover the trek in a day or two if you commit to it.

Hike the Mohawk

The Mohawk trail is a blue-blazed loop starting and ending on the Appalachian Trail in Northwestern Connecticut.  Its southern beginning is in Cornwall Bridge and it winds  through Cornwall to its northern terminus in Falls Village.  Along the way are stunning views, quiet ponds, old country roads, and plenty of exercise.
The Mohawk Trail was originally part of the Appalachian Trail before the AT was rerouted east of the Housatonic River in the 1970s.
