    The 22nd annual Trails Weekend in Connecticut is this weekend and there will be more than 200 free events statewide.

    The trails celebration is the largest in the nation and you’re sure to find something the whole family can explore.

    “Our mission is to connect people to the land so it’s getting people outdoors to explore,” said Eric Hammerling, of the Connecticut Forest and Parks Association, which hosts the trails weekend.

    Connecticut’s terrain is diverse and so are the forest and park events.

    Whether you’re looking for an education walk, bird watching tour, or something for new or experienced hikers, the guided tours are free and led by experts of the area.
