Mattabesett and Mount Higby Trail is a 9.1 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Middlefield, Connecticut that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from April until October.
Very nice views from the top, a few short scrambles, quite a few spots where the trail is 1-2 ft from sheer drop so caution etc
definitely good for a view. alot of vertical climbing and rocks to make your way through. didn't find any landmarks. I like to hike to a location, and explore old historical places if the hike allows. Was proud to summit after the effort though!
A decent workout. A little bit of scrambling from time to time. The effort is well worth it, with some amazing panoramic views at the top of the mountain about three-quarters of a mile into the trail.
Been hiking this trail for years it's a good one with great views and a nice moderate trail
Love this hike. Good workout climb to a fantastic view. There's a few peaks with pretty overlooks. On a good rainy spring there's a beautiful waterfall. If doing the whole hike this trail leads to the Chauncey peak hike off country club road in Middletown. It's a great workout hike.
Awsome views, great teail.
Cool trail! Lots of ups and downs! Watch out for loose rocks and bees but still awesome. Bring deep
Woods bug spray for sure
Really enjoyed this trail. Great climbs from the start which are also fun to end with. As I got away from the ledges and into the woods, I found it just as beautiful. Followed the trail to the "T" of you will. Going left on the "T" wasn't impressive but going to the right was fantastic. Wild blueberries and a pair of owls to have lunch with. :)
Very good, interesting trail.
