Connecticut State Route 169
Length: 32.0 mi / 51.5 km
Time to Allow: Take one hour to drive without stopping or one full day to visit places along the byway.
Traverse one of the last unspoiled areas in the northeastern United States. This byway winds through history, passing colonial homesteads, churches, stone walls, meeting houses, and private schools as it connects classic New England towns. Views include maple and pine stands and glacially deposited rocks and boulders that lie strewn throughout fields.
Head to Connecticut State Route 169 between mid-October and mid-November, where views of dazzling fall foliage will greet you around every bend.
Connecticut State Route 169 declares its distinction from the urban sprawl of the East Coast with its quiet village landscapes, scenic woodlands, and quaint farmsteads amid fertile river bottoms and rolling hills.
