Bull’s Bridge to Kent, Connecticut. Dave and I hiked a rugged 7.5 mile stretch of the Appalachian Trail from Bull’s Bridge to Kent. There was 3" to a foot of snow on the ground and it was rough going although it’s one of the most beautiful hikes I’ve done yet.
It took us about 5.5 hours and halfway through it we looked at each other thinking "what the hell have we gotten ourselves into." It’s a tough walk in clear weather, in snow it’s a challenge. Many hills, up and down, very rocky and in summer an oasis for rattlesnakes. I knew there was a good reason for us to have done it in winter.
