Quinebaug River named to national networkOct 6th, 2012 | By Environmental Headlines -- CT environmental news | Category: River
This year, though, the Quinebaug has risen anew to prominence in the region. Several years ago 10 miles in Massachusetts were named part of the National Recreation Trail network, and this summer, 35 miles more of the river in Connecticut was added to the trail, including sections through Thompson, Putnam, Pomfret, Brooklyn, Killingly, Plainfield and Canterbury.
As a National Recreation Trail – one of five in the state, including the newly designated Willimantic River water trail – the Quinebaug trail has been deemed an “exemplary trail of local and regional significance” by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior.
