Terrain: This ride can be characterized by its pleasant diversity. Surprisingly flat sections of road offering terrific views of the Litchfield Hills are combined with several short, steep climbs and invigorating descents.

For the most part, this route is lightly traveled except on the section of Rte. 44 in Canaan, where extra caution is advised. Most of the roads have good shoulders, with the exception of some portions of Rte. 272 south of Norfolk center and Goshen East Street which is a narrow but very scenic country lane.

Level: Moderate to Challenging
