Very humid August day and rocks were a little slick. Short scrambles over low glacier ridges were a nice mix in, even having to lift the dog up onto some. Canopy covers well and there is minimal sun. If your into mushrooms....this is a good trail for you. The Orange circle trail on the way back cuts through some large boulders which kids would love.

Hiked green rectangle off Dunk Rock, picked up Yellow, and looped back on Blue Rectangle. Beautiful New England forest, Yellow could have been marked better.

As a beginner at hiking I found some parts a little challenging then others. The trail was very beautiful with nice view of water. Only thing is I wish it was marked a little more clearly. Will be definitely be going back again. Also not far from black hog brewing co... if your into good craft beer.

One of my favorite trails... Many trail choices for everybody's liking.

Ideal for point A-B trail runs. Hoping it lives up to its name and I spot some wild hops.

Beautiful, but certain parts of the trail aren’t very well marked. Be prepared to stare at your phone/map and compass with some regularity.

Really enjoyed this hike. Challenging but some cool views with some wildlife. Be careful because trail is tricky to follow with the storm damage

I enjoyed this hike a lot. It is definitely challenging at times and towards the end it was hard to navigate back. We ended up in someone’s back yard and having to walk the entire road back to the parking lot. A few others on the trail also went off the trail multiple times so it is important you pay close attention. Originally thought it would be 6.1 Miles but because of back tracking and getting lost we ended up doing 7.5 mi. Could have been because marked trees may have fallen since the storm. I still recommend it but be prepared for some steep spots. Also keep a look out for black racers near the water. We ran into two by the waterfall so watch your step!!

Love this hike. Close to home, challenging but just short enough that it isn’t too bad. The views are absolutely stunning at the top, and you can see as far as the Catskills. Definitely worth checking out~

A wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Hikes can be as long or short as you like.

had a wonderful walk. great for bikes or walking. bring big spray though.

This is my favorite trail. It’s the perfect length and just the right balance of hills so you can keep a steady pace. It’s a little rocky and the rocks can be slick after the rain. Our dogs love it. It’s not too busy so they can come off the leashes. The waterfall is so beautiful especially if you go down to the bottom and look up.

Moderate challenge trail, and well worth the hike into the beautiful waterfall.

Went on Monday 5/21/18...Great trail! Just be careful since the storm that went through. Lots of trees down on the trail. Definitely recommend going!

We did the red trail to green. We wear our kids in back packs and found it very doable- we did watch our steps carefully on parts of the red though! Great place we will be returning soon!

just short of rock climbing. great workout.

Nice climb with a great view at the top watch out for snakes

This is a great trail for bringing kids as it’s paved and flat. Kids can walk or ride their bike while you walk.

Great hike!! Love the water views and the waterfall. Will definitely be back when the leaves are on the trees. Not much shade today on an 80 degree day.

Awesome hike! Easy to navigate, moderate to difficult terrain, great views of the water and a waterfall. No lookout but it’s not needed. I’ll be back.

looking for a flat trail look elsewhere

One of the best hiking experiences I’ve had. There is a beautiful lake view. Has a little bit of a challenge while hiking through. There is a water fall. Can’t wait to go back!

Great Trail. Hard work!! Beautiful scenery. Know what your getting into here. Lot of ups and downs. Definitely a top CT Trail. A must do for those looking for a moderate challenge. We loved it!

Great loop. Little more taxing than we expected but great fun. The waterfall is beautiful and the rest of the loop was through quiet woods.

This trail is hard work, a lot of ups and downs and rough going.

I also did the loop, I wouldn’t rate it as “hard.” The views on the summit were decent, and we also saw an enormous turkey vulture on the top.

I went a couple days after a significant rain event, and the trail wasn't that fun. it was basically walking uphill in a swampy stream. There are small rocks throughout the trail that make it very easy to twist an ankle. Definitely recommend proper foot wear.

The tower at the top is very nice, but I probably wouldn't do this particular hike again.
