very nice trail. lots of parking at the historic bridge, but no restrooms. the blue trail is extremely well marked. be sure to take the red/blue spur trail to the waterfall. did the entire north and south loop in 4 hours, with a half hour lunch at the pond. north loop is slightly up hill, but not excessive. of the south loop on the way back descends nicely.

Nice trail. Took my four year old and 14 year old and they both loved in. Not too easy but not too difficult. Waterfall was awesome. Even had a picnic. Would go again!

Just beautiful.

Beautiful peaceful hike. Trail was pretty easy, lots of roots and rocks to be aware of but we loved it.

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.

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.

good trail took dogs had a nice time. not easy, but not too hard either.

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!!

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.

This trail was more challenging than I expected! Lots of climbing up hills. There was some bad parts of the trail where you are unstable on the side of the hill and other parts you are just climbing rocks. I would classify it as a more difficult hike, but doable!!

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!

Moderate trail, great hike to the vista! One of the few Connecticut’s gem.

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.

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!

Nice and easy day hike

very nice. definitely has some steep steady inclines. great work out!

Definitely some challenging incline areas for true novices. We did the loop clockwise & towards the end, there were some areas not clearly marked due to trees falling, but that was a challenge my kids enjoyed! Also some boggy/wet areas but those will dry out in due time.

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.

Beautiful trail series with waterfall, bridges, and skyline views. Took a few questionable turns but made it back to original trail. 4.2 miles overall with extra turns. Trails need some updating and clearing for the warm weather, but otherwise this is an absolute must!

Nice trail with some moderate challenges, especially along the river bank. Great vista view on clear days. Note: For best route following, do NOT use the park's orange blazes as they only cover the main route - not the more interesting hike.

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

Just the right length for a quick hike any time of the year. Fall hike with all the brilliant colors is especially enjoyable

My friend and I hiked it with the snow on the ground which while adding to the difficulty it was very fun. It was not very difficult, just hilly. We got some beautiful shots to!

All around enjoyable and I would love to do this again early summer one day!

I love how it connected to the Day Pond Trail!
