Just for Kids

GER_1581The Trail is lots of fun for kids.    In addition to several opportunities for short, easy hikes, we offer other activities for kids of all ages.

Safe off-road biking.  The recently completed Hammonasset section of the Trail is a great place for a wonderful 2-mile round trip bike ride. Click here for more information on accessing the Trail.

Field Trips. The Trail is a great place for a field trip or group outing for your school, scout group or religious organization. We would be happy to organize a hike for your group. Email one of our Town Team Leaders for more information:

Geocaching. We now have at least two geocaches on the Trail, one hidden by an 8-year old friend of the Trail! Search for these treasures or hide your own!   Click here for more info

Bike safety. We occasionally participate in bike rodeos and other bike safety events in our communities. Watch our website for upcoming events.

Scout projects.   Scouts are making great contributions to the Trail.  They have build Trailhead kiosks, sitting areas, and Trailhead signs.  We welcome Scouts looking for Eagle Scout or Gold Award project ideas!  Click here.
