This morning it was a beautiful 70° out.  The skies were clear and there was a slight breeze.  It was the perfect day for a hike.  I kids hikingwanted to bring the boys (who are 2 & 4) somewhere that was easy for them to walk.  I want them to enjoy hiking as much as I do and I knew if it was a difficult hike, they might get tired and miserable and have not-so-great memories of hiking.

Gristmill Trail in Shelton, CT was the perfect spot.  It’s a short 0.30 mile trail (just over a half mile there and back.) It’s a mostly flat trail that follows Far Mill River and is part of the Shelton Land Conservation Trust.  It was a really beautiful and peaceful and my boys had a great time!

The trails were well-marked with white rectangles on every few trees.  My 4-year-old was excited to learn about the trail markers and happily exclaimed that we were going the right way every time he saw one!
