Jerricho Blue Blazed Trail


The Jerricho Trail travels through The Mattatuck State Forest and along a ridgeline overlooking The Naugatuck River. It is one of the Waterbury Area Trails and connects the more regional Mattatuck Blue Blazed Trail with The Whitestone Cliffs Trail. Near the junction with The Mattatuck Trail is one of the famed Leatherman caves. Undoubtedly the Leatherman walked a similar route as the Jerricho now follows. Jerricho is a short 3.4 miles but there are a couple of loops that can be made on either of its ends to lengthen your hike.
