With hundreds of access points and over 50 primitive campsites, the Connecticut River provides a unique experience to paddle through the heart of New England. The Connecticut River Paddlers’ Trail is a series of primitive campsites and river access points from its headwaters in New Hampshire’s Great North Woods south to Long Island Sound. A variety of organizations assist with trail planning and development. With the support of the community, work continues to protect the river corridor, construct new campsites and portage trails, and expand the Paddlers’Trail from source to sea.

Mt Ascutney Regional Outdoor Recreation Project and Survey

The towns of Weathersfield, West Windsor and Windsor are working together to develop an outdoor recreation plan that will identify ways to strengthen recreational opportunities and explore connections to villages. This is a great chance to share thoughts about water based recreation needs in the area. Is an additional river access site needed in this area? Do you feel there is a need for a better connection to the community from the river ?
