Why Should You Go Hiking In Salisbury?
Salisbury boasts the highest summit in the state of Connecticut at 2,316 feet at Bear Mountain, and access to the highest point in the state on the south slope of Mount Frissell (2,380 feet). There are many accessible local trail heads that lead to the Appalachian Trail which runs through town and is many hikers' favorite section of the trail. The trail is situated so that the Housatonic River Valley is to the east and the Taconic Range is to the west, making it incredibly scenic. Berkshire Natural Resource Council offers a great interactive map of the South Taconic Range here.
