The view from the top is worth the hike. Too many litterbugs leaving their trash around though.

Great hike. Started at West Lane entrance. Went left at fork and took Blue/Red trail to Blue trail. Nice scenes. Great peak. Took Blue up to Blue/Yellow and cut back across East to starting point. AllTrails said we hiked 4.3 miles and burned 1431 calories. NICE. Definitely got a great workout. Would highly recommend. Can't wait to go back and do full loop.

A really awesome trail with great views. It would certainly be a 5 star review if the trails were marked better. Very easy to get lost. I have The AllTrails Pro and it bailed us out a couple of times.

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.

Excellent Place to Run! It’s my go to every morning. There are so many varieties of trails at this park it’s amazing. Depending on my mood I can so 3- 8 miles and elevations can be very challenging depending on which trail you take. There’s also the possibility of getting lost but just follow the color your sticking with or always have you mike tracker on with a map and you’ll know which way to go back in no time. The perk to this park are the amazing views within each trail. It’s definitely something that makes you want to run even more and lifts the spirit.

Quite a picturesque hike with plenty of views, but difficult to follow the trail markers, and most of the maps along trail heads are missing.

Good if you live in Fairfield County and don’t feel like driving too far to get into the woods for exercise...some broken glass at the only lookout spot, though.

Easy hike but watch for copper heads in the summer. Also good for running if you want a challenge

Not rigorous, but beautiful, and a great place to decompress

I'm sure the trail(s) are incredible. But with ZERO trail markers, I can't tell you. The trail map at the park is a piece of wood wolith no markings at all. Walked roadways for an hour and saw nothing other than the same cars and people apparently looking for the same thing.

I did this hike with a friend for the first time and really got an intense workout. Such beautiful views overlooking the reservoir. Some rocky and steep inclines and we ended up a bit lost until we used our handy dandy map offered with this app to guide us back. We hiked a good 3+ hours and felt invigorated.

This beautiful, and short trail (about 45 mins around) is a nice relaxing walk with a few moderate ups and downs and great sights of the lake up close. Perfect trail for sunny days and is mostly shaded. Don’t take this trail a day or 2 after a rain storm unless you don’t mind muddy shoes and ankles. In this case the higher elevation trails aren’t muddy.

Not great and you can hear the highway the whole time.

for the casual hiker it's a bit harder but worth the workout.

Love this place; some steep parts but a great hike.

beautiful trail! the view at the top is the best. my great Dane loves it as well

nice woody trails,lots of mosquitoes.
easy to get lost for a beginner.

I just went on this trail for the first time with my 14y/o son and it was really fun. There are several beautiful views once you reach the western ledge of Mt. Higby. There are some steep areas to navigate and other trails that u can use on the way back to get a different view. I highly recommend this hiking trail!

Beautiful area and really nice trail. If you walk off the path a bit you can find some great and safe cliff jumping areas, very beautiful views too!

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.

Great and local. As another commenter said, lots of bugs in Spring/early Summer. Almost none in fall.

Nice lake. Some rocks for kids to scramble up. Great vibe as other hikers share the road, parking lot, and trails.

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

This was my first Solo hike and first hike I have done in about 8 years, it was easy enough for me. The trail was clean and clearly marked. The markers were clear and easy to read as long as you knew what you were looking for (make sure to Google how trail markers work if you are new). The terrain was mostly easy, there were a few parts that you had to climb up or down some rocks but nothing strenuous. it is a bit rocky in some spots but I was fine in a pair of all terrain shoes.

We took the red trail around the lake. While it did keep you extremely close to the water, this was one of the most awkward trails I’ve done. There was food and fishing trash at almost every look out point. It was much rockier than I thought even after reading the reviews. But the worst part was that after walking through what felt like bunch of back yards - the trail just ends with a big fence blocking you and you have to walk on a busy road back to the parking lot. I had my dog who loves investigating everything. It’s a bit narrow, no sidewalk. It was a tough one. That really sucked.

Super cool hike, with numerous blazes and trails throughout to make it easier or harder for what you may prefer. Castle Craig is unique to see, but the Blue Blaze trail offers some cool scenes of the reservoir.

Awesome place to relax and see the view. I drove up and on top is amazing. It overlook hubbard park and you can see i691 alot of green that is the best part check it out https://youtu.be/kyc615ImddE

Very pretty, but make *sure* you bring your bug spray!

Greatly enjoyed this hike. The view was amazing to see

Great place to hike. Been a few years ago. I wanted to go back this summer but unfortunately it’s closed due to storm damage
