I visit Sessions Woods regularly since I first moved to CT in '09. I live 15 minutes away from it in the City of Bristol. It's nice to get away from the urban setting and appreciate the peace and tranquility of nature. There is ample parking area and information center. Though there are several trails, I usually walk the Beaver Pond Trail. Part of the trail is along the stream and it's a pleasure to see and hear the soothing water streams. There are also mini trails to explore, that branch out from the main one,. My favorite are the Beaver pond, the fire tower view point and the Waterfall (mind your steps going down to the waterfall, it is steep). In the Fall, you can appreciate the leaves changing color and the fallen leaves create a path of bright yellow and red which appears glorious to say the least. I have a special place in my heart for Sessions Woods and I hope you have an enjoyable time visiting there too!
It was a great trail with several side trails off the main loop. There is a waterfall, wildlife observatory, and so much more I have to go back. My opinion start with the beaver trail entrance and explore the side trails as you go. Terrain is pretty good as it's mostly gravel if you stay on the main trail (people bring strollers/kids/dogs). Few tougher inclines too.
This was a great trail with lots of options and trails to take. Although it doesn't look like it on the app, This did loop around. Great incline, not extreme but just enough to get a really good workout. There are some sections with lots of rocks. Would def do again
This was a very pleasant well marked trail. Excellent for families. Offers a cool rock waterfall, cool fire tower to climb, beaver dams to view, small wooden boardwalk surrounded by lily pads and turtles. There is one porta potty on the trail right before the turn off to the wildlife blind and the Firetower.
