BY FAR MY FAVORITE TRAIL IN CT. BLUE FROM THE BOTTOM AND RETURN ON THE WHITE FOR A GREAT 3 1/2 HOUR HIKE

Solid experience. Wish we had taken the path that strayed to the left, taking hikers up to the top of the tall rock facing. Didn't notice it until the trip back down from the blue trail though. Overall pretty good!

a little difficult in the fall due to loose rocky terrain covered by leaves but very pretty and easy to make it as short or as long as you like with many trail options

Went up blue and down violet. Trails were awesome and the park was clean. Unfortunately the tower was closed today for maintenance but otherwise awesome
