Hiking the Mattabessett Trail from Bluff Head in North Guilford.

Went for a  hike today with some fine folks from the New Haven Hike Club.  We started our hike from the Bluff Head Parking Lot on Rte 77 in North Guilford. We hiked the Mattabesset Trail to Broomstick Ledges, to Rockland Preserve than returned via the Lone Pine Trail, Braemore Preserve, Rte 77 and then took a new trail,  not on the map which paralleled Rte 77 and took us back to the parking lot.  The hike took about 3 and a half hours and we covered 5.7 miles.  There’s the GPS info below along with some pictures I took.  This was a moderate hike and a lot of fun and I made new friends, it was a great time….  After which we stopped in Durham and had a bite to eat at a supper great place to eat near Rt 17 and Rt 79…
