Weston / Redding, CT Beautiful hike along the reservoir with a few peaks and forest walks.. WARNING: The trail from Tudor Rd north to Route 53 is closed from February to July. During this time, there are Northern Goshawks that are nesting in the area. They have very sharp claws and they will attack hikers. Do not ignore. Must have trail map as permit - can print out from website or use map from CT Walk Book.
I did a short out/back from Davis Hill Dr to Rt 53. Excellent short hike with just the right balance of challenge and relaxation. There were a few changes of elevation that were fairly steep, but short, and a few sections of rocky/uneven terrain. The shore of the Saugautuck Resevior makes a great place to stop and catch your breath.
