National Trail System: New England National Scenic Trail
Page NTS12

The New England National Scenic Trail (NENST) travels through Massachusetts and Connecticut and includes large parts of the existing Metacomet-Monadnock-Mattabesett (MMM) Trail System. It also includes an extension to Long Island Sound and a significant deviation from the MMM Trail route in Massachusetts to an area with more protected land. The route will cover about 220 miles in the two states. It is the only National Scenic Trail that lies entirely in New England.

The NENST is administered by the U.S. Department of Interior.
