I’ve been exploring and writing about Connecticut since 2006. After a decade, I began compiling CTMQ guides for each town in the state. I plan on “completing” Killingly CTMQ-style… as well as the other 168 towns, cities, and boroughs in Connecticut. That is the ultimate goal of CTMQ.
If I’ve missed anything in town or if anything has closed or changed, please let me know.

Hike update – Old Furnace now has a real (DEEP official) trail map, online and everything. Also the orange trail has been reblazed (and I believe slightly rerouted).
The sign at southern trailhead if the CFPA blue trail on Squaw Rock road is gone, with the official trailhead about 50 feet in. Was hard to see anyway — southern trailhead can be found at the end of the 90 degree turn to the west on Squaw Rock road.
The (former?) Red Trail (shadows the highway) has not, at least yet, been reblazed. I’d love to see it reblazed and extended to the existing trail that loops below the lower pond and over by 695 (the end of the former CT turnpike). Would make a nice official outer loop.
