Trail Maps

The Town of East Haddam is fortunate to have many miles of trails and encourages everyone to enjoy them.  The trails are generally open sunrise to sunset although some are closed during hunting season.  The properties include land owned and/or maintained by the East Haddam Land Trust, East Haddam Conservation Commission, Town of East Haddam, Connecticut Audubon Society, State of Connecticut, The Nature Conservancy and even some jointly owned with neighboring towns. 

Trail Guidelines

  • Please stay on the marked trails.
  • Do not take short cuts or make new paths.
  • Carry out everything you bring in.
  • If you find litter on the trail, please pick it up and leave the trail in better shape than you found it.
  • Respect the natural environment.
  • Don’t disturb animals, plants or habitats unless you are maintaining the trail.  Never feed the animals.
  • Whenever you hike or ride a trail alone, make sure someone knows where you are going.
  • During hunting season, wear bright colored clothing, even on properties that don’t allow hunting.  A fluorescent orange vest or hat is recommended.
  • Unless dogs are specifically not allowed, keep them on a leash or under your control at all times.
  • All users are required to obtain permission before entering private property.  By staying on marked trails you will avoid inadvertently trespassing on private land or easements not open to the public.
  • Don’t block access gates as this could prevent first responders or rescue vehicles from entering.
