Barefoot Hikers of Connecticut
There is nothing more natural than hiking through nature barefoot. The soles of your feet and toes are wonderful sensory organs and the myriad of feelings from earth, grass, moss, pine-needles, and mud are wonderful. Many could not see hiking any other way.
Hiking Barefoot causes virtually no trail erosion since a bare foot makes much less of an imprint than a booted foot. Bare feet are therefore the environmentally sound choice for hiking.
The Barefoot Hikers are groups of people who enjoy hiking barefoot.

Connecticut Park and Forest Association
Since the first members banded together in 1895 to save Connecticut's forests from runaway fires and excessive timber harvesting, CFPA's singular blend of vision, persistence, and partnership has protected the landscapes whose very names mean Connecticut. Peoples State Forest. Mohawk State Forest. Gillette Castle. Rocky Neck. Sherwood Island. Talcott Mountain. All of these special places were protected through partnership efforts that CFPA catalyzed.
Over the past century, CFPA has been instrumental in the acquisition of more than 100 state parks and forests for public use and enjoyment. Today, CFPA continues to champion the needs of Connecticut's public recreational facilities for the funding, personnel and equipment necessary to maintain and improve these natural treasures.
CFPA's leadership over the years set a national example for successful forest conservation and reversed the damage to Connecticut's natural resources. When the organization began its work, Connecticut was 20% forested: today it is 60% forested. CFPA remains vigilant and involved in the sound management and protection of our land, water and wildlife resources.
In addition to protecting land for public enjoyment, CFPA's visionary leaders established the Blue-Blazed Hiking Trail System in 1929 which traverses public and private lands throughout Connecticut and is enjoyed by thousands of citizens each year. Today, approximately 825 miles of trails are maintained by hundreds of CFPA volunteers working in cooperation with many public and private landowners.
