The Brookside Trail at Northwest Park in Windsor, Connecticut is an easy 1.3-mile loop trail that features a brook and small hills.
The trail is very nice and hilly - lots of up and down with many roots, so just watch your step, especially during autumn with wet leaves.This trail is one of the longer trails in Northwest Park but not connected to any others. Dogs are more than welcome, it is definitely my dog's favorite trail due to the ridiculous amount of squirrels.
Brookside trail is about a half a mile from the parking lot - past the Nature Center and Animal Barn on the right. Hikers will need to walk over to this trailhead since there's no parking directly at the trailhead.
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.
This trail follows a purple blaze with a black dot in the center.
No biking allowed on the trail.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
