Pistapaug Mountain Trail

The Pistapaug Mountain trail leads hikers on a moderate climb to the top of the 700-foot mountain, a traprock ridge in Durham.  Once on top, views of Pistapaug Pond unfold below with rolling hills and farmland dotted with red barns visible on the other side.  The trail is maintained by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association and is marked by easy-to-follow blue blazes, part of the Mattabesett Trail system. Blanketed by a fresh snowfall, the first of the season, a recent hike up the mountain was hushed and tranquil.  Read Peter Marteka’s column about the trail here.
