Chamber of Commerce offers 2024 “Guide to Opt Outside”


KENT—The Chamber of Commerce is offering its 2024 “Guide to Opt Outside,” which lists ways to enjoy the great outdoors in Kent.

Kent is rich in natural resources for visitors and residents alike. The guide lists such attractions as the 800-acre Pond Mountain Natural Area; St. John’s Ledge, a popular place for both advanced hikers and rock climbers, and the Bulls Bridge recreation area.

The Housatonic River is well-known for kayaking, canoeing, whitewater paddling, fish and wildlife observation, while the Appalachian Trail traverses a five-mile stretch that runs parallel to the river to Cornwall and back. 

Kent is home to three state parks—Lake Waramaug, Macedonia Brook and Kent Falls state parks—all of which offer natural beauty and opportunities for outdoor activities.

Free copies of the guide are available by clicking here.
