Trumbull, Parking & Trail Access

To park near the old town hall, take State Route 25 to Exit 9 and turn south on Daniel's Farm Road. At the light, take a right on State Route 127, followed by an immediate right on Tait Road (not Tait's Mill Road) to the designated parking area beside the old town hall (now called the Helen Plumb Building). The trailhead lies 50 yards down the road on the left.
