Walk over Ten Mile Mountain

Gaylordsville, Connecticut.

We hiked the Appalachian Trail between Hoyt Rd, on the New York/Connecticut border to Bull’s Bridge over Ten Mile Mountain with one of the heads of the Connecticut Appalachian Mountain Club. I’ve decided to take this section of trail, closer to my house and with this club which, amazingly since I live in Connecticut, I’ve not worked with before.

It’s a great section, about 4 miles long with plenty of photo ops along the way, including this nice swamp on the southern end and the Housatonic River (which is very low now) on the northern end.

I’m still maintaining the Race Brook Falls trail for the Berkshire AMC as well.

If I’m not fit this summer with plenty of new images, I’m not doing my job.

    1. Thanks Gary. No doubt we’ll be hiking this section a few times when you get back. I’m not sure you’ve ever done it now that I think about it so you can add to your AT mileage.

    1. Thanks Martin. It’s a very nice section of trail with lots of interesting possibilities for images in all seasons. I’ve hiked it maybe ten times before but now that I’m maintaining it I’ll pay closer attention.
