Welcome to the Connecticut River Birding Trail, especially the Upper Valley Section. The CRBT is dedicated to the conservation of wildlife and their natural habitats. There are 31 sites on the Upper Valley section of the Connecticut River Birding Trail, each with its own personality and wonderful natural attributes. Lyme, the home of Breakfast on the Connecticut, has three sites: The Pinnacle, The Chaffee Wildlife Management Area and Hewes Brook Wetland along the Appalachian Trail. All three of these areas have well-defined trails through a variety of terrain. All are very productive birding areas and can be accessed best spring through fall. The Birding Trail is a non-profit conservation-education initiative – their philosophy is that the more people get out and enjoy the land, the more they will respect natural areas and the wonders they highlight. It is their hope that with increased involvement in, and appreciation for, natural landscapes, the public will be inspired to conserve and protect these and other special places, now and in the future. Stay at Breakfast on the Connecticut and if you decide to explore sites on the CRBT we will give you a map that outlines all 31 sites.
