Trail Overview

The Case Mountain Trail System is on 285 acres in the southeastern section of Manchester. The trails and property are owned and maintained by the Town of Manchester and the Manchester Conservation Commission in partnership with CFPA. This wooded area contains the summits of Case Mountain (elev.735 ft), Lookout Mountain (elevation 744 ft), and Birch Mountain (elevation 786 ft). The system consists of more than 10 miles of interconnecting trails that feature rock formations, upland woodlands, and abundant wildlife. Many of the trails wind their way to Lookout Mountain, which provides panoramic views of the western hills and the Hartford skyline.


CFPA acknowledges we are on the traditional lands of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, the Mohegans, the Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke, Golden Hill Paugussett, Nipmuc, and Niantic peoples. We pay our respect to the Indigenous people who are no longer here due to colonization, forced relocation, disease, and warfare. We thank them for stewarding this land throughout generations. We recognize the continued presence of Indigenous people on this territory who have survived attempted genocide, and who still hold ties to the land spiritually and culturally. We shall be good stewards of the land we all call Quinnentucket, Connecticut.
