This circuit combines unspoiled pastoral landscapes with four timeless village greens, from bucolic to country classic, and stately; each offers a unique glimpse into the town's past and reflects its future.
Along the way, you will cycle along the shoreline of the bass bountiful waters of Bantam Lake, Connecticut's largest natural lake, and pass through breezy expanses, verdant in summer and smoldering with the seasonal fire colors of autumn.
If time allows, explore each village center and the historic points of interest you will find along the way including- the Morris Historical Society's one-room schoolhouse, Bethlehem's Historical Society and the Bellamy- Ferriday House and Garden, and the Tapping Reeve House, Law School and Historical Society in Litchfield.
If you want to shorten the circuit to 17 miles, take Rte. 61 north in the center of Morris, to Rte. 63 north to Litchfield Center.
