Marked trails provide winter recreation options for West Hartford residents.
By Ronni Newton
Rockledge Golf Course will be closed to golfers for the season as of Dec. 4, 2023, but the course is open to use for other purposes during the winter months.
The trails are open as of Dec. 4 for running, hiking, cross country skiing, or snowshoeing. And while dogs are permitted, the same rules that apply to all schools and town parks year round apply.
Guidelines for use of the Rocklege Golf Club in the winter months include:
Park only in the Rockledge Golf Club parking lot off South Main Street.
Trails are open from dawn to dusk every day.
Trails start and end at the Pro Shop. Do not cut across greens to reach trails.
Stay on the designated trails and avoid cutting through greens to avoid hazardous areas and prevent damage to the greens and tees.
Bicycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, and motorized vehicles of any kind ARE NOT ALLOWED.
- Dogs must be leashed at all times and must be kept under control.
- Dog waste must be bagged and removed from the area.
There are three marked trails: yellow trail (0.6 mile), red trail (1.6 miles); and the blue trail (2.2 miles). All three trails start and end at the Golf Shop and are clearly marked with colored markers spaced 0.1 mile apart.
