This hike treks along the wild Housatonic River, first spanning it via a historic covered bridge. Next join the Appalachian Trail, wandering by whitewater rapids amid former farmland, replete with stone fences. The hike then stops by an AT shelter, where old agricultural implements can be found. Leave the enticing water and then climb to Ten Mile Hill for a view. A mini-loop at hike’s end leads by old chimneys from a forgotten homesite.
