American Legion Blue Blazed Trail


The American Legion and Peoples State Forests offer a 14 mile network of trails designated as State Blue Blazed Trails. Their blazes are in fact multi-colored. These forests also affer camping and youth group camping.  Located in Barkhamsted the forest also contains a museum, picnic shelters, and toilets - always a welcome amenity for hikers. The original acres were a gift from the American Legion. The Peoples State Forest was a purchase by CFPA and several other groups. It abuts the Farmington River which is a National Scenic Water Way and managed by the National Park Service.
