Life-like sculptures of bears and wolves welcome your arrival to this peaceful and tranquil setting featuring open fields and dense woodlands. The park was donated to the citizens of Connecticut by the internationally renowned Huntington family.
This park has a good combination of wide, simple trails and some more challenging single track. There are some nice water features and some interesting boulders. It's nice to head of the main trails and take some of the smaller trails that zig-zag through the woods and mountain laurel.
Great park for just about everything. Have hiked just about every inch of this place, mountain biked through, scenic runs and even a few nice little swims. Great place to go out on a canoe or kayak. There is a tiny little island out on the larger body of water which has a little replica of a lighthouse. Water is deep enough to jump in from the tower, one of my favorite spots to relax by.
First day biking at Huntington. We hooked up with a regular who was leaving. Jared unloaded his bike and graciously gave us a 5 mile tour of the park. I loved it! Lots for everyone. In my limited experience, there seemed to be plenty of trails for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders. Can't wait to go back next weekend.
We did a loop from the main parking area south around the lakes and then headed for the north to create about a 5m loop. A gentle walk with some grade change but nothing really challenging. A great afternoon walk. Lots of options to shorten the walk if needed. Would definitely do again.
