Walk the Locks on the former Farmington Canal, now a Greenway, from northern Hamden into southern Cheshire.

Then walk (or bike, blade, or jog) north to the Lock Keeper’s Museum at Lock 12 in Cheshire, a distance of 3 miles.


Participants can arrange their own shuttle or return via the same route for a total of 6 miles. Self-guided (the trail is paved, with a stone dust path on the side; it is flat and smooth, with some road crossings).


Meet trail ambassadors Lisa Fernandez and Dalton King at the Lock Keeper’s House in Hamden, off of Whitney Avenue/Route 10 across the street from the Sleeping Giant Country Club and Aunt Chilada’s. Address is 3908 Whitney Avenue, Hamden CT.  Park on the grass.
