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.

Parking
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.

Pets
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Blaze Color
This trail follows a purple blaze with a black dot in the center.

Prohibited
No biking allowed on the trail.

Before you leave...

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
