Lovely trek through the woods today with about an inch of fresh snow on the ground. Streams were almost frozen but if you cross on the non-icy rocks, then it’s doable. Forgot my crampons but was fine. Pond itself was frozen solid but still beautiful.

Very nice segment of the Appalachian Trail. Quiet when I hiked it on a weekday, only saw one other person in Cheshire. It isn't particularly hard once you get past the initial climb in either Dalton or Cheshire depending on which way you're going. The trail is relatively well marked although I can think of a few points where it makes a sudden turn. If you aren't paying attention you could lose it or accidentally end up following an old logging road. Don't let that scare you though, it's still easy enough to follow. I did it in winter after a thaw I probably missed out on some of the beauty of fall or summer I imagine it would be even better then.

Nice hike that takes you all over Blue Hills. Steep ascents and descents are made easier by step-like rock formations or rock-like step formations. Path marked pretty well, but even when I got off track, plenty of other routes to find you way back to the main trail. 93 highway noise pollution is the main negative.

Really cool trail with beautiful views. There are a lot of really cool spots where you climb up rocks to get on top of the hills. It's a lot of fun for people of all ages. Definitely a favorite

Well marked. Wide trails almost the whole way. Exactly 7 miles to the top of Brace travelling counter clockwise. As mentioned, counterclockwise is recommended because the grade on the downhill of Ashley Hill is what you need after climbing for hours. There are parts of the ridge between peaks that are spectacular. One can jog large portions of this route. I probably should have added Frissel, which is the highest point in CT, as it would only add about 0.8 to the total. Strava marked this at 11.75 and All Trails at 11.6, so not sure where the 10.9 comes from...

I hiked this trail in mid December so most of the trail was icy or full of leaves, I used yak traks. Some of the markers on the rocks were covered by leaves or ice so it would get confusing for me (beginner). The entrance I was taken to is near someones farm that smells very strongly of manure due to them having two very large open containers of it close by. If you don't mind the super strong manure smell, the hiking is somewhat challenging. Some parts require novice rock climbing, but otherwise, it's a pretty good trail. Would definitely come back if I was in the area, but won't go out of my way to come back.

The start of the trail was plowed out so that you can access the trail. Somebody previously been there and had already broke the trail out. Once we started our hike up the trail, we were in snowshoes cause someone bare booted and made divots throughout the broken out part of the trail. We broke the trail out again to cover up the divots. We didn’t make it all the way as the snow drifts were high making the snowshoeing a tad bit harder. We turned around and came back out but the part that we traversed is a nice trail if nobody else bare boots it.

They repainted the markings and cleaned up the trail. Awesome hike on a beautiful day.

Against my better judgment I did not bring my micro spikes which I could really have used! At least I had my poles…That won’t happen again… Higher elevations have about 2 inches of snow & some hidden ice. Because of all the rain on Sunday the area is very wet and slippery. Don’t be me. Bring your equipment! I turned around at about 2 miles so I wouldn’t get tired and get hurt… Still a good workout!

Completed this hike about a couple of weeks ago. This is highpoint #18 for me. The trail was quite straight forward and well marked. I wouldn’t say the rock scrambling is any difficult, but just watch out if it’s wet. Views on the trail were quite impressive, but just unfortunate there is no view on the actual summit. Overall a great beginner hike that adds just enough of a challenge to feel like the Connecticut highpoint was deserved.

what I'll say is if you're like me and trip over air then this isnt the time of year to do this section of trail. the ridge was pleasantly challenging and a great work out but veryyyyyyyyy slippery with the wet leaves and patches of ice. I'll definitely come back some time in the summer when it's drier as the view seems so promising!!

Hiked 10/12/19. Other than a little bit of a sweat at the walk up (counter clockwise as indicated by many) this was easy. Not much views to speak of at the highest point, but a nice picnic slope overlooking the Catskills and several nice lookouts on the way up. Glad I came right around peak colors. The walk down from the flagpole was a bit rocky, but it that soon gave way to an easy and quick stroll. Taking my time this took around 3 hours or less. Tacked on Bash Bish Falls not too far up the road for a lovely day. Parking gets a bit limited, so recommend getting there early.

we started from Cheshire, and it was quite steep in the beginning, but not too hard. middle of November with a lot of leaves at times, felt dangerous, we had to really pay attention. also even though the white blazes are very bright, it good to be on the lookout for them, because the trail takes many unexpected turns. thoroughly enjoyed it, would do it again.

Not marked in some sections. Lots of moderate ups and downs. Ok views.

Great spot for a late fall hike. Would recommend hiking south and ending at Mt. Watatic.

hike this trail with my six year old chocolate lab. I hiked it with one and a half of water and a jacket in the fall. The first section starting in Ellisville is a lot of navigation from the app. I would recommend starting it to track what you're doing so that the map directs you. found that out the hard way. Did not see any markers at all considering I hiked from elisvil to the headquarters. Got off the trail a few times. tracked with Gaia which reported 14.53 miles. I would describe it as long and difficult for this area. no real elevation just long. would recommend for the athletic challenge. pretty walk in the fall.

Well marked trails. First 2+ miles involved climbing and a few rock scrambles. Needed to give our Shepard a butt boost to get her up one scramble. Hiked after mist of the leaves were gone Also rained earlier in the week. Still, views were great. There were 2 parts of the hike where it was like walking in a creek. Hint: waterproof boots. Really enjoyed it. Mario’s restaurant in Nrw Lebanon is very good.
