The Appalachian Trail, a renowned long-distance hiking path, intersects with the Connecticut River in the picturesque region of New England. This trail stretches over 2,000 miles from Georgia to Maine, offering hikers a diverse array of landscapes and ecosystems. In the vicinity of the Connecticut River, the trail traverses through serene hardwood forests and historic remnants of old charcoal pits. One notable section of the trail near the river is located within Falls Village, which used to be the site of a large ironworks, below a 50-foot waterfall that is spectacular after heavy rain or snowmelt. This part of the trail offers hikers a unique blend of natural beauty and historical intrigue.
