I love this whole area. Spent all late summer/fall exploring all the different trails around this area. There are a bunch and most of them are worth exploring

Hiked the area around Farmington. There is a small parking area on Colt Hwy, I can only usually find it by cars parked there. It just looks like a small turn around place. Great trails, awesome for beginners or a quick walk. Ran into (almost literally) a Rat Snake climbing from one tree to another. As with most wildlife, you leave them alone, they leave you alone. The views are beautiful and I can't wait to walk the trail in the Fall time.

I didn't find the parking in Farmington if someone has an address to share with me please I would love to go and hike

We did this one from reservoir 6. Beside the deers it was peaceful and challenging. Good directions!

I wasn't able to find the trail from the location listed, but there is a parking area nearby on Colt Hwy in Farmington (search "Parking for Metacomet Trailmore" on Google Maps). From there I took the easy-to-moderate blue-blazed trail "Settlement Rd" trail to Rattlesnake Cliffs and enjoyed the scenic overlook and "Will Warren's Den" cave/boulders before turning back the way I came.

I did a part of this trail today, from Rte 71 in Meriden/Berlin over to the Castle Craig and back. Definitely some beautiful views!

Let's just say I could live out there.

By far some of the best views the state has to offer. Some of the more aggressive stretches can be tricky for doggies. Expect to do 6-10 mile stretches between parking spots if you are hiking through.

I've hiked 40 or so of the 62ish miles of the Metacomet Trail and it is by far my favorite trail in CT! A portion runs right near my house so I've done some section 5 or 6 times. There are so many interesting things to see on many different parts of the trail including Will Warren's Den on a section in Farmington and an old Nike Missle base in Plainville.
