Snow covered trail but nicely packed. Beautiful.

Loved this loop! Trail is very clearly marked.
Beautiful- Still snow on the ground, but packed down from hikers so slippery on climbing sections.
About .5 mile is on a neighborhood road before you head back into the woods.
Lots of streams for dogs to drink.

Nice short hike for a Sunday afternoon. the views from the tower are great and there are some great outlooks along the way

Really easy hike. Perfect for kids and pets. Definitely recommend.

Short and steep, lots of nice waterfalls and cascades, there are facilities and picnic tables around the bottom, as well as a place to swim/wade.

Easy to follow trail. Mostly walking with some slight hills.

Love the view. Clean air. No insects bugs or sight of animals or even snakes. Neutral for all. My favorite all time place.

Beautiful walk, some gentle hills. Easy and quick with some pretty water scenery.

beautiful views and awesome hike

Great medium effort hike. Nice views. I would not recommend going down the north side without crampons until end of winter. It is an ice fall now.

Difficult for us. A lot of unexpected climbing up the stone ledges. Like hiking on corduroy.

Great hike

Great trail, well marked. My wife and I are from the Jersey Shore and the thinner air did take a small toll on us. Beautiful sights and great hike after driving 3 hours to get there. Should have stretched a little more.

Didn’t do the whole loop, just doing sections of Tunxis.

I got to a little over a mile over steep rock formation then lost the trail. Going to go back there was 3 plus inches of snow it was beautiful.

Great place to hike year round. Views are some of Connecticut’s best. Heublein tower is always fun. Connects to Metacomet trail when u want to extend the trek. Always a family favorite.

Not what I expected. Very fun!

If your in western Massachusetts or eastern N.Y. traveling on 87, this is worth a stop. Short hike down to some dramatic falls . Don’t forget your camera!

We did this on December 28, 2016 in lots of snow and with a high of 7 degrees! It was an awesome loop, definitely felt sub zero on the summit with the winds.

Pretty hike, took me about 50 mins front to back including ~5-10 mins at the top. Love the tower! Very cool.

I love this trail! It feels like a moderate hike to me with outstanding views of the lake. It's well marked and there are a number of options to take. Park in the boat launch area if you don't want to pay.

Easy hike and good views. It's a bit crowded though. There are lots of families and people of all ages on the trail. There is a picnic spot near the tower.

Awesome views

This was a solid hike that had a little bit of everything. The first 1/4 of the hike was challenging and really got you going. From that point, it was a beautiful and gradual ascent to the summit with a spectacular view. Don’t take this one lightly as it is time consuming and somewhat strenuous at points. Definitely worth a solid half day of your time!

very nice hike with pretty views. some rather steep sections and a decent amount of ice on some of the rocks making it more challenging. lots of other hikes that can also be done there. love the conifer trees near the summit
