About the Author
THE CONNECTICUT FOREST & PARK ASSOCIATION (CFPA) is the first private, nonprofit, member-based organization established in Connecticut, and the founder and maintainer of over 825 miles of Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails. In 1929, CFPA's Trails Committee proposed a radical idea--establish and maintain hundreds of miles of walking trails by a workforce of volunteers organized and trained by CFPA. Now, 90 years later, this idea is still being carried forward by volunteers, members, partners, CFPA staff, and many landowners who have joined forces over time to maintain, improve, and expand the "Blue Trails." CFPA's mission is to connect people to the land in order to protect forests, parks, and trails for current and future generations to enjoy.
