Tina’s Guide to a Great Hiking Spot

There have been a number of CT hikes that I truly enjoyed, but if I had to pick a favorite I would have to say it is the Steep Rock Preserve in Washington CT.

There are actually multiple locations within the Steep Rock Association. Hidden Valley offers flatter trails, Steep Rock is a good climb and has multiple trail options, and Macricostas Preserve is another good climb with a beautiful view of Lake Waramaug from the top. There are also multiple bridges and a tunnel at Steep Rock for added things to see. Fall in Litchfield county offers some great leaf-peeping too. When I don’t have an entire day to drive far to find a new mountain, one of these hikes is the perfect distance and difficulty level to get my heart pumping and legs working. I’m tired when we finish, but Petey usually wants to keep going.
About author

Tina has been working at NorthPoint Pets since 2017. Her dog Petey lived in a kennel for two years (as part of a cruelty case), after which she adopted him as a foster. She thought he was too small for her liking, but after falling in love with his huge personality, she decided to keep him. They’ve been a pair ever since. Tina met Nicci while volunteering at a rescue operation in 2012. In addition to managing the front of the store, you can find Tina completing orders and keeping the store organized.
