Connecticut's Scenic Route 77

13.8 miles: 0 hours, 22 minutes

SR 77 begins near Long Island Sound and gently climbs into rolling hills on the way to Durham. A glorious wall of foliage lines the two-lane highway for most of its length creating a spectacular sight all year, especially in autumn when the leaves are ablaze in gold, orange and red.


The rural countryside along SR 77 is dotted with white farmhouses, meadows, red barns and stone walls. Pullouts allow you to stop and take in the postcard scenery as well as snap a few photographs. Enjoy fabulous vistas of tranquil waters as you pass alongside ponds and Quonnipaug Lake.
