Route: Iron Trail ( CT)

Connecticut, US
12 km
Vertical Gain

This little 4.1 mile trail has a lot to offer, but it also has a lot of very wet and boggy deep rutted trail at its southern end that may not be worth the effort. The Northern half of this trail is superb with gorgeous views and dramatic cliffs and slopes. At the northern tip you will also find the impressive Beckley Furnace Monument and easy parking. The Iron Trail is one of the CFPA Blue Blaze Trails and is 4.1 miles long. It runs through Housatonic State Forest and the Canaan Mountain Natural Area Preserve. The southern but starts at Canaan Mountain Road and meanders northwards towards the Beckley Furnace in Canaan.
