    Autumn is a lovely time for a stroll in northeast Connecticut. For the past 32 years, Walktober has offered folks countless walks in the region, from enjoying-the-great-outdoors hikes to informational treks to historic jaunts. This year’s Walktober runs through Nov. 6, and here are a few of the upcoming options:

    Oct. 1: “Willimantic’s Lost Neighborhoods,” 1 p.m., The Mill Museum, 411 Main St., Willimantic

    Oct. 6: “Charcoal Burning and Quarries: The Nipmuc and Black Community of Ashford Woods,” 10 a.m. , Commuter Lot, Route 198, Phoenixville
