Farmington Canal Line
One of the best natural and healthy experiences you can have in Hamden Ct is to spend some time walking, jogging or riding bikes on the Linear Trail. The living trail which starts in New Haven, Ct and currently ends in North Hampton Massachusetts bisects the town of Hamden and is approximately 84 miles long. There are eventual plans to connect this with other communities throughout the state. The trail was an old rail and canal line used for business and commerce many years ago. The northern Hamden and Cheshire sections are heavily wooded and offer all the rustic charm New England can provide. I believe this section runs approximately 12-15 miles. No glitz, no neon. These sections meander near the base of Sleeping Giant and Quinnipiac University. Free commuter lots are located along the way for parking. There are sufficient areas to leave the trail and get refreshments and rest if you desire. Spring and Fall are two of the favored times of the year.
