DEEP Announces Temporary Closure of the Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) today announced the temporary closure of the Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail. The land upon which the Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail is located is owned by The Windsor Locks Canal Company and leased to the state for the public use as a state park trail.
In connection with the redevelopment of the Montgomery Mills building, DEEP and the Windsor Locks Canal Company are finalizing various impacted arrangements, including trail access.  Until those arrangements are complete, the trail will be closed to the public.  DEEP apologizes for the inconvenience, and is working to resolve this issue as soon as possible.
Nearby parks to the Windsor Locks Canal Trail include: Penwood State Park in Bloomfield and Talcott Mountain State Park in Simsbury.
