Hiking at Hancock Brook - Waterbury CT



Hancock Brook Blue Blazed Trail
Hancock Brook Blue Blazed Trail
The Hancock Brook Blue Blazed trail is a surprise gem of a hiking trail. It is short and sweet at 2.8 miles on a loop. There is a pleasant stroll at the beginning alongside picturesque Hancock Brook. Then you abruptly climb to two bald rock outlooks. Connecticutters don't usual think about the wilderness and hiking while thinking about Waterbury at the same time; but seriously, seeing is believing. This one is worth a trip to find.


The snippet above about sums it up. One word of advice: Yes, you do walk through the gravel pit before finding the trail. Trust the map.
