      Newtown is host to two riding areas on state land: Upper and Lower Paugussett State Forests. You can also access Collis P Huntington State Park, as well. There are numerous open space parcels with rideable trails, too, such as Newtown Forestry Association's Brunot Property and Town open space at Pole Bridge and Fairfield Hills. There is also a 10 mile trail, some sections are not rideable called Al's Trail that connects Upper Paugussett State Forest, with some Nature Conservancy Land, Rocky Glenn State Park, and Fairfield Hills.
