The Litchfield Hills

TRAVEL GUIDE

Loading...

The foothills of the Berkshire Mountains are some of the most spectacular and unspoiled scenery in Connecticut. Two highways, Interstate 84 and Route 8, form the southern and eastern boundaries of the region. New York, to the west, and Massachusetts, to the north, complete the rectangle. Grand old inns and sophisticated eateries are plentiful. Rolling farmlands abut thick forests, and trails—including a section of the Appalachian Trail—traverse state parks and forests. Two rivers, the Housatonic and the Farmington, attract anglers and canoers, and the state's three largest natural lakes, Waramaug, Bantam, and Twin, are here. Sweeping town greens and stately homes anchor Litchfield and New Milford. Kent, New Preston, and Woodbury draw avid antiquers, and Washington and Norfolk provide a glimpse into New England village life as it might have existed two centuries ago.
