Wonderful, challenging trail for us to do as an athletic couple with our dog. some pretty steep sections that were fun to climb up, and retired you to get your hands dirty a bit. some of the downward sections could be a little hard for someone with bad joints or balance issues

This was a great 6 mile lollipop loop starting on the Middlesex trail. Reach White Rock Mountain summit up the White Rock Trail, cross over to Mount Hunger summit, and back down the Middlesex Trail. At one point while descending Middlesex Trail there was a rope to help us out. Two parking spots on N. Bear Swamp Rd. There's wide stream you cross that may be a challenge in the spring, but that's just speculation. Came across quite a few unleashed dogs, with one barking at us for some time, in case you're not into that. At least it was cute. We'll probably never hike the Waterbury side again! :P
