Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: There is plenty of water on trail right now but always carry enough for you and your dog(s). The train is easy to moderate with plenty of ups and downs. Be on the look out for critters and snakes and keep control of your pups. Make sure they can handle a long distance hike if going longer than a weekend. The section we did was 11 miles.

Bugs: A few skeeters.

Comments
Comments: From West Cornwall Rd to Stewart Hollow Brook Shelter Southbound. It was good to have all the elevation gain and loss at the start of the trail and then the flatter section by the Housitonic River at the end of the day. Nice stretch of trail. Looking forward to the last 23 miles of the state.
