New England National Scenic Trail (NET)


The New England National Scenic Trail (NET) is a 215-mile trail route that has been in existence for over half a century. It travels through 39 communities in Connecticut and Massachusetts, and is comprised primarily of the historic Mattabesett, Metacomet, and Monadnock (M-M-M) Trails. The principal stewards of the New England National Scenic Trail are the Western Massachusetts Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) in Massachusetts, and the Connecticut Forest and Park Association (CFPA) in Connecticut.

Most information you will need to know can be found on the official NET website, but here are a few of the most popular links:
