Norfolk Land Trust Trail Races

  • Norfolk Land Trust

Norfolk Land Trust

The Norfolk Land Trust ("NLT"), an all volunteer organization, was created in 1982 to encourage the preservation of natural heritage and open space in Norfolk, Connecticut. Our resources include pristine water courses, beautiful wetlands, meadows and woodlands, and the plants and animals whose habitat it is.

CLASSIC 5K

A challenging and scenic race through picturesque Barbour Woods. The course is a mixture of single and double track. Climb up Beech Hill for a view of Haystack Mountain, run on carriage roads beside historic Killarney Bridge, descend down the dry dam to a flat stretch of railroad bed, ascend through woodlands and finally along a gladed wetland, known as the Swamp Trail to the finish. (Please see yellow route on map.)

HAYSTACK 10K

Want to go a little longer? Try adding a challenging loop over Haystack Mountain. This course begins on the same route as the 5K, but jumps off of the Sunset Trail onto the South Dam, crosses Route 272N and ascends through a grassy meadow onto an intense single track to summit at Norfolk's iconic Haystack Mountain Tower. Descend down the mountainside on a carriage path to meet up with a single track winding along the mountainside bringing you back to the park's main entrance where you will cross over the South Dam and finish up the 5k course. (Please see map. The green route is added to the yellow loop for the 10k.
