26. Hike the Appalachian Trail
Through hikers may be going from Georgia to Maine, or vice-versa, but you may just want to bite off the Connecticut portion of the 2,175-mile-long Appalachian Trail. Zigzagging for 52 miles across the state's northwest corner, the trail cuts through charming towns where you can visit historic sites, village taverns and even a covered bridge or two. For trail information (including camping regulations), contact the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (www.appalachiantrail.org) or the Appalachian Mountain Club/Connecticut Chapter (www.ct-amc.org). Whether you're day-tripping or camping over, consider the following highlights.
