Vista's and views, wilderness and woods, combined with gently rolling roads make this a popular touring route. It will appeal to cyclists wanting to enjoy alpine views without suffering any more than a couple of short, steep climbs, and reward them with splendid descents.
For much of your ride, the landscape opens up to offer fine views of the Litchfield Hills. You will pedal through miles of lush woodland landscapes, interspersed with meadows, bright green in spring, flower strewn in summer and tawny in autumn. Along the way, you will pass an idyllic cross section of New England's enchantments, set against the timeless backdrop of the Litchfield Hills.
