Great pretty trail. I loved the views and my dog enjoyed a little swim in the lake off one of the trails. Can be a workout if you choose the right trail to follow.
Skys the limit challenge brought me here. OK hike to the Scenic Vista leaves were very slippery and the view was cool. Hit up a few geocaches along the way. Not too much to bring me all the way back out here again but worth the check out if your in the area.
This is a VERY family friendly hike. easy terrain, little incline in most spots. Trailhead parking is ample and free, and has a compost toilet that honestly is the cleanest i have ever seen hiking across the country at big and small trails. The first thing you encounter steps from the parking lot at the trailhead is a list of signs telling stories of the trail and the bridge - cool read and educational. Then comes a totally cool red iron bridge. Photo worthy for sure, with bright green water running beneath it. . Great path, forest views and a great view a the top of the Housatonic river and CT countryside. Lots of space at top to have lunch or a snack. Main trail is very well marked with blazes on trees. However beware there is a network of tiny little trails that wind off of the main trails that are hardly marked at all and very confusing. Saw the chimney from the burnt down house and a piece of the castle. Great fall family hike, not too long not too strenuous, no complaints from the kiddies.
