Trail Map Guide
With the funds received from a CT DEEP Recreational Trails Program Grant, the Town of Colchester partnered with the Chatham Health District to develop this Trail Map Guide. The purpose for this guide is to encourage physical activity by promoting the use of our region's amazing network of walking trails. The Trail Map Guide includes a listing and the general location of the public trail systems within the six towns in the Chatham District (Colchester, East Haddam, East Hampton, Hebron, Marlborough and Portland). The guide also includes a full-page map showing users the approximate location of each trail facility. The guide can be printed by clicking on the link, or they are also available at the Colchester Town Clerk's Office.
