New England Trail

Officially designated as a national scenic trail in 2009, the New England Trail gives federal recognition to 215 miles of an historic three-trail system leading from Long Island Sound through the rocky ridges, forests and farmlands of central Connecticut and Massachusetts, to the New Hampshire border. Known as the “Triple-M” or “3M” Trail, the NET includes segments of the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail, with its exposed summits and waterfalls; the Mattabesett Trail in southern Connecticut; and the Metacomet Trail, which follows the eponymous north-south ridgeline.
