Description

This little 2.6 mile loop is in Wolcott and roughly equidistant between Waterbury and Southington. Its said that Abraham Lincoln once walked through one section of this woodland. The trail consists of a right spiralling loop shaped like a Go Cart Track that meanders through a combination of boggy rocky marshland and slightly elevated dense old woodland of Oak, Birch and Hickory. The rolling rocks, lush vegetation and birdsong makes this place very magical.

I have to add that I was chatting about a different topic with friend/hiker/writer David Leff and he mentioned that like the Paugussett Trail, the Finch Brook Trail also has poetry on it. I guess I missed it. You can probably understand why. I'm going to have to return (maybe with our kids) to walk this one!

Poetry

You need proof that you stopped to recite the poem (out loud). :)
