We hiked backwards on CT segment 4 from the Brookside McCurdy Trail heading towards the Rolling Creek Trailhead and once we got to the peak we noticed a fence and it split in two directions, and so I checked on Hiking Project and decided it was correct to stay straight so descended down the trail for about 1/2 mile. The trail started to look less and less distinct until it all of a sudden ended and looked like we were still on the trail, just slightly off it, so entered the woods to see if we could find the trail again to no avail. It looks like many others did the same as there were a few trails that went nowhere. We went back up to the top and on hiking project it had a trail that was white that went right off trail- it was a much smaller trail, less distinct and didn't seem right, but had no choice. When we reached the bottom section we realized this was the new CT trail-as there was a sign and a lot of logs blocking the old trail- looks like it was rerouted some time ago. It was beautiful but much longer and had to climb some again and then back down. I am guessing at least an extra mile compared to the old trail. I wish there were some signage at the top or some carin stones to mark the trail. And I wonder how to let Hiking Project know so it can show the new trail. Jun 6, 2018
