Metacomet Trail

  189/315 is right around the corner from my house (really about 600 yards). Any info on overnight? I would like to leave the house anytime and spend overnight before heading back.... don't want any trouble, just having trouble finding good resources on where it is OK to stay overnight on the MT

I finally located the trail entrance about 20 feet past a dirt road gate on the right that I had been using to get to the ridge line.  Thanks for
    the help!

Gene, The trailhead at 315 and 189 is actually on Mountain Road which comes off the Rd right at the juncture.  The telphone poles are blazed and the trail breaks into the woods about halfway up on the
right side of the road.  That is a nice section of trail although we hiked it in the rain.  Happy Trails.

I am having difficulty locating the trail head in East Granby at rtes. 315 and 189 that leads to south toward Penwood State Park.  The trail maps say that the trail head is on Mountain Road, but there are no blue/yellow blazed trail markers on either of the two entry points into the woods.  The only indication of the trail is the sign
post at the bottom of the road in the three way intersection.  Thanks.

A topographic Metacomet Trail map is available at . Enjoy!
