Guests are invited to enjoy drinks and light refreshments in the Outdoor Performance Area following the walk. All proceeds will support I-Park’s artists-in-residence programs and reservations in advance are REQUIRED. For additional information, write or call 860-873-2468.

In accordance with the State of Connecticut Reopening Guidelines, our Trail Walk will practice social distancing procedures during check-in and throughout the event to ensure our participants’ safety. Visitors are encouraged to wear a mask if they are not able to maintain 6 feet of distance from other hikers – however, face masks will not be required while hiking on our trails. I-Park is dedicated to everyone’s personal health and is eager to welcome back the public for a safe, relaxing day of hiking!
