Short, easy trails that are usually full of people and children. The trails in the woods are not well marked. When I feel like a quick stroll it's nice with some lovely views. But it's not great when my dogs and I have serious energy to burn, or when I don't feel like company.

Easy family hike. Short trails. Trails aren't marked very well and there are several off shoots that aren't marked. Nice views of the CT River from the castle.

I love to photograph my clients here. The outdoor settings and structures are beautiful as backgrounds for my clients and their families.
