Cross Highway & Tunxis Trail North. The easiest way to get there: The trail head at Cross Highway starts in the valley, parking is scarce and the trail is not in good shape. The trail head at Tunxis Trail North is also in need of repair, but is the best place to park. To get there take Newtown Turnpike-from Cross Highway it is 3/4 miles from the blinking light on the right, once on Tunxis trail it T's about 100 yards down, make a right and park.
From Rt. 53, follow Newtown Turnpike Tunxis Trail is the third road on the left about 3 miles from the reservoir.
From Route 7 heading north, turn right onto Route 107; merge into Route 53 north; turn right onto Lonestown Road; drive 1.0 mile and when Lonetown Road bears left, bear slightly right instead onto Cross Highway heading east; drive 1.5 miles and turn right onto Newtown Turnpike; drive 0.8 of a mile to make a right turn onto Mattatuck Trail; turn right onto Tunix Trail and park 3/4 away around the turn around circle at the dead end at the end of Tunix Trail.
2.9 miles of trail.
