Erwin Clifford Park Trail
Travel on Route 14 west out of Hartford to Quechee/West Hartford Road. Turning onto that road, you will cross the White River via the West Hartford Bridge. Then turn left on Westfield Drive and left again on Recreation Drive. Then follow the brown signs to Clifford Park. Parking: Public parking is available at the end of Recreation Drive in the parking lot.
This is a very easy and pleasant walk around Erwin Clifford Park. The trail leaves from the parking lot at the park entrance and passes through some picnic areas on the bank of the White River. It then travels through a field before weaving around the horseshoe pits. At an intersection before a wooden bridge, walkers should turn right onto a smaller trail, as continuing straight ahead leads instead onto a snowmobile trail. After this right turn, the trail runs through a patch of ferns before ending back at the parking lot. The trail is fairly clear due to use, and both the start and finish are marked with signs reading ‘Trail’. This park is open from sunrise to 9:00 pm, with restrooms and athletic facilities available.
