8. Stately Salisbury - Connecticut's Most Northwestern Community

It is ten scenic miles on Rte. 44 west from Canaan to Salisbury, Connecticut's most northwestern community situated in a setting of great natural beauty.

Excellent fishing and a boat launching area is open to the public at Twin Lakes. Visitors can rent boats at O'Hara's Marina. For the adventurous, hike the Appalachian Trail to Bear Mountain (2,316 ft.), Bald Peak (2,010 ft.), or Mount Frissell (2,380 ft.), three of Connecticut's highest points. Those reaching these lofty summits are rewarded with fabulous views of three states.

For the less adventurous, enjoy a drive on Rte. 44 west through the villages of Salisbury and Lakeville. You will pass restaurants, gracious country inns, well-kept homes dating to the Federal or Greek Revival periods, and interesting shops and galleries.
