The Lantern Hill trail is perfect for a first foray into hiking. The trails are clearly marked and an hour in the forest passes very quickly and pleasurably.

This is a meet up spot for men. Not family friendly. Wish it was because it’s a very nice trail. We did it but were very uncomfortable when we returned to the parking lot. I googled around and confirmed what I thought was going on.

This is a deceptively large patch of woods. There are some great trails (on west side) and some rocky ones (south and down the middle). Groton Parks and Rec is looking to decommission some of the poor or unmarked trails to improve the park. Great place for a dog walk or several mile loop hike.

Bugs pretty heavy in swamp and its a swamp but dry right now.Bet its real pretty in the fall. Will come back.

only 1.5 miles if you stick by pond didnt have full map til return.Wish we had whole map. Nice clear and flat

Nice easy trail! perfect for my dog. Even has a water fountain to fill the water bowl

The trail itself was lovely! We used a photo of the map to navigate the trails. The trails were poorly marked, so many times we had to guess where we were and bushwhack until we crossed the trail. We enjoyed the railroad trail the most, but combined it with the "regular" trail. (see my Recording) Overall, it was a lovely park to hike in and well kept. I'd hike here again!

Love this trail. Easy to walk. Has a little of everything. Woods, marsh, rocks, beach, and a bathroom at the end of the trail

Nice and easy. Beautiful views from the bluffs.

great trail, amazing view, not long at all! definitely not for those who aren’t fans of hills because it is a small climb but worth it :) one of my new favorite trails in the area

Map provided by the ranger station is terrible, very difficult to differentiate roads from trails, no labeling of trails or even where Mt Misery is on the map. Despite that, this was a pleasant hike with nice views. When we came down from the peak we continued on the blue blazed trail into the woods rather than walking back on the road. Although not clearly marked as such, this is the Pachaug/Nehantic trail which splits at a point where an old railroad bed is visible. We turned right onto the Nehantic which eventually meets the road which takes you back to the parking area. Adds about a mile to the walk.

Easy trail along the shoreline. Great for dogs.

Hiked this trail yesterday (7-17-2018) and a year ago as well. Trail is very poorly marked and the map is not useful. Yesterday there were lots of bees, some were marked. Went over one large fallen tree and there was a hive in the tree (not marked) that I din not see until half over the tree. Got stung! would be a great trail for a Scout troop to take on and provide better trail markings and a better map! Trail is very nice and not difficult but definitely needs to be better marked!

Great, relatively short hike. My 8 and 11 year old kids love this trail!

One of my favorite spots in SECT. Nice easy trail, beautiful views from the bluff.

Great easy trail loop...wouldn't classify this as "moderate". You can tell that some spots don't get as much foot traffic, but the trails are easy to follow. There are reforestation efforts going on so there are a lot of trees down across the path (but easy to get around or climb over). You do need access to get past the gate for parking, but that's easy to get from the town. Loads of mushrooms, pine trees, ferns, and toads along the way!

Blue/Yellow trail- Steep climb, worth every second for the view.

Lots of ways to do these breakheart area trails. Today we did this loop roughly with a side trip to Alton Jones Whispering Pines campus to fetch our dog Zip, who decided it was more fun to chase deer than pay attention to us!

All steep incline but well worth the view at the top!

Overgrown... :(

I did enjoy this trail but it was not clearly marked at beginning so I needed this app to get onto the trail. Also, read the signs when parking, we parked next to parked cars and missed the sign for trailer parking. Got an $89 parking ticket.

Make sure you have a regional water authority pass and you’ll have the gate codes to get in. Beautiful trails- obviously not well traveled as parts are overgrown and lots of trees down on the trail

Arrived here at 715am ( well after the sun came up) and gates were closed so I couldn't get in. The sign on the gate said "trails are open every day" "Gate opens at sun up and closes at sundown" so I'm left disappointed and confused.

Good short hike. The trail up is well marked. Decent incline but peters out before it gets too hard. Great overlook! I took Fire Tower Rd down to complete the loop.

Loved this trail. Very well maintained. Used a stroller for the whole loop with only a little difficulty at times but nothing impassible. A lot of points to step off and see a lot of neat areas. Great for kids as well

Quick sunrise hike while at Foxwoods business conference. less than 20 minutes to the top if hike loop clockwise.

Senic trail and good for hiking. Footing is difficult for running.

Bluff Point is a wonderful trail that leads you out to views of Fishers Island and Long Island Sound. The beach makes for an adequate swim day, and the second half of the loop is steep enough to burn off lunch.

The only (slight) complaint I have is that the signage could be a lot better. Otherwise, had a great time on this trail! There is a little bit of everything - hills, rocks, beautiful pond views, a few mucky spots (my hiking poles came in handy in a couple of places), lots of ferns, some pretty mountain laurel in bloom. I used insect repellent and didn't find it buggy at all, which surprised me on a nice warm day like this. Only explored the blue trail this time, but will come back another day to hike the yellow.

Not really a hike but more or less a woodland walking trail next to a fully operational historical site... gift shop ,icecream and restrooms next to the castle. You can take a tour for $6 per adult for the castle portion (worth it) or watch a free little movie near with admission area. Pretty neat in all honesty. Awesome views of the water along the outside of the castle.
