Enjoy a variety of activities in Connecticut's second largest state forest.
definitely good for a view. alot of vertical climbing and rocks to make your way through. didn't find any landmarks. I like to hike to a location, and explore old historical places if the hike allows. Was proud to summit after the effort though!
Love this hike. Good workout climb to a fantastic view. There's a few peaks with pretty overlooks. On a good rainy spring there's a beautiful waterfall. If doing the whole hike this trail leads to the Chauncey peak hike off country club road in Middletown. It's a great workout hike.

Beautiful. Trail is well marked. Fun hike.
Really enjoyed this trail. Great climbs from the start which are also fun to end with. As I got away from the ledges and into the woods, I found it just as beautiful. Followed the trail to the "T" of you will. Going left on the "T" wasn't impressive but going to the right was fantastic. Wild blueberries and a pair of owls to have lunch with. :)
My time on this trail was fantastic. It allows you to go as far as you want, and then turn around. The trail is well marked and gives amazing views most of the time. It's not to far from civilization and it's very nice. There is some graffiti, but it doesn't take away too much from the scene. This is my favorite trail in this area.
