It is a nice preserve however trails can be crowded with lots of groups and mosquitos were crazy bad. However, there is a bathroom in the gift shop and everyone is really nice!

It began as beautiful walk through the marsh and forest. Back and forth. Then...all woods. Lots of long grass. Bugs. All the bugs. The loop wasn’t clearly marked- thankfully we had all trails to help! Probably wouldn’t go again. Or maybe in the fall?

Disappointing this morning. I tried to take my kids here and the trails are very overgrown. We had to turn around part way through the blue loop.

Okay hike. Not very exciting, and never found waterfall unless the spillway at the beginning is it. Trail was not always easy to follow. Probably would have been a little better with a state trail map. Overall good day but not as scenic or exciting as we hoped. We started from the spillway on Trail 1 road.

This is a nice set of trails. Unlike many previous reviews, I did not have a difficult time navigating the blazes. They are inconsistently spaced, but clear. The sights involve high voltage power lines, and some of the trails are very gravelly paths that follow the power lines. Not my favorite. The wooded areas are lovely, but you will need bug spray! Even with my bug spray on, I had a constant swarm around my head and left with several bites.

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

Did the smaller of the trails and it was a good hike. My husband and I did the trail around the pond. Beautiful scenes, saw the waterfall, and got a decent sweat out of it.

Excellent trail and beautiful views , the green trail has some advanced hiking points.

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

My Fiancé and I gave this trail a go today and we really enjoyed it! The water views were great and it was a great walk through the wild life! Our only complaint is that finding markers on the way back were more difficult and confusing. They did leave maps however, which helped us greatly! We would definitely do this hike again!

Nice quiet trail, well marked

Completed with 5 and 8 year olds. Enjoyable hike.

Nice trail and some really cool huge rocks. Got lost though :(. Also it has some hills which is a good workout when running. The hills r very small.

So many beautiful birds, it is marsh lands so be prepared for the wetness and bugs.

Decent hike but nothing really special. The trails aren’t the best of marked. I could see it being easy for someone without experience or just out for a leisurely walk could get off course. Nice hike for a warm up for the summer season.

kids enjoyed it alot

A good workout with a relaxing environment.

Beautiful marsh and water views, great birding and nice mostly flat trails. The only downside is the volume of ticks, there are more here than anywhere else in the state we've hiked.

just ok. wide open trails, not much elevation change. view of Hartford is nice. the case mountain park however is much larger than this trail, and a little research will show miles of trails all the way to the gay city park and beyond

Great hike for a short afternoon out with the dog or kids. Some trails are harder than others and a great view at the top!

New favorite! Will be back for sure, took the dog for a quick dip in the pond.

Made my way to WW2 site. Powerline area has some muddy areas but u can jump it with caution. Hard to get lost really as t\rails are marked well. Warmer weather now so watch the bugs. Some steep grades so go at ur own pace.

Great place for a nice hike in the woods! The trails are relatively well marked but I did get a little lost around the power lines.

Very pretty trail, easy to follow. Part of the blue trail is closed.

Nice and quiet .

Good trail. We would get to an intersection and take another color. Got lost a little bit near power lines because nothing was marked. Id do it again
