Scenic hiking trails, castles, mill ruins and more dot the countryside

East Haddam is home to some beautiful state parks that cater to every interest and age level. A hiker's paradise, numerous trails dot the 700+ acres of state land that preserves the rural character of this area.

The East Haddam Land Trust and East Haddam Conservation Commission also have preserves of their own with hiking trails typically accessible for non-residents. A Town Beach and Dog Park make it possible for you to bring your four-legged friend along as well.


With so many open space preserves and ample river access, East Haddam is perfect for those who love to be outdoors.
From golfing to hiking, swimming to boating, there is plenty of outdoor adventures to fill a weekend with.


East Haddam's scenic and winding country roads are perfect for riding. Whether it be by car, bike, or motorcycle, easy access to the main highways but country seclusion makes for a great escape.

From the south come up along I-95 through either Lyme or Haddam. This will start your journey into the village section or close to Gillette's Castle.

From the north use CT-9 or CT-11, which will put you right in the heart of downtown or close to Devil's Hopyard, respectively.
