Litchfield Hills, Connecticut

Salisbury: Salmon Kill Rd.

Salisbury, which is almost as northwest as you can get in Connecticut’s northwest hills, is a quaint village center marked by iconic churches, adorable shops, and brick laid sidewalks. Once outside the tiny main drag, the streets open up to reveal vast swaths of farmland with the peaks of the Berkshire Range rolling above. This route, starting downtown and stretching out Salmon Kill Road, has it all, plus the addition of scenic Salmon Creek. Park and begin anywhere downtown, then head south through town on Route 41. In approximately .4 miles, turn left onto Salmon Kill Road. This beautiful street reaches about 4 miles to the intersection with Route 112. Runners can complete an out and back of up to ~9 miles, or complete a 6.5 mile loop using Farnam Road and Main Street (or the parallel Railroad Ramble Trail). Note: Salmon Kill Road and Farnam Road do not have wide shoulders, but traffic here is very light.

Essentials
  • 6.5 mile loop or up to 9 miles out and back
