Nice hike with a few lively views

Great moderate hike with a couple of good views, some waterfalls and a couple very minor rock scrambles.

A nice lil hike, steep Incline till it evens out real nice peaceful walk, unfortunately it is close to homes that you can see while hiking,

a little more strenuous with snow,red trail up to peak awesome,blue trail on way back not so much,a lot of hidden rocks and mud,definitely would be better without snow,all in all recommended, on to the next one

Great hike with spectacular views of the mountains and waterfall. Also, well defined trail markers. Definitely would consider it a moderate hike.

Wonderful hike alongside the lake until you get to a ridge with a beautiful view the whole way. The castle on top is super cool and has an awesome panoramic view. Probably my favorite half day hike I've done in CT!

sign at beginning that says this trail section is closed

Beautiful and serene. Nice views, well marked trail. A favorite local hike.

Trail seems to be closed for the time being. Multiple signs at the beginning with down trees across the trail. It sounds like a great hike- just not do-able at this time

Nice, easy walk. The trail was well maintained and the markings were clear. There were some nice vistas that showed off the fall foliage which was beautiful

Great loop, blue trail takes you back in time through a tight and rocky valley. I’m proud of my 7 and 9 year old for doh g whole loop. Nice view from summit too!

The red trail was pretty challenging with many inclines which was a great workout. HOWEVER - it came to a point in the trail where the MARKERS STOPPED and we got completely lost. This is a huge oversight for the park and can be scary for hikers. When will this be fixed?? We had to Uber back to my car.

My husband and I walked the red trail today. This was the first time we walked a nature trail. Some parts of the trail was very rocky. It was a great experience and the view was beautiful.

awesome,loved both views, definitely worth it

spent time there 40 years ago, thinking of staying a couple nights on the ledges if they still let you. beautiful place to get a little rock climbing experience

This trail is practically in my backyard, and I’m so glad I rediscovered it!! It’s a really nice out and back.... gorgeous glacial rocks!

You can continue further to pinnacle rock if you have more time. This took me about an hour

Fun trail, one of the roads less traveled. From Pinnacle rock you can see out over Hartford, Lake Compounds, Bristol, and other nearby towns. Great views!

Nice and well maintained trail. The rocks are gorgeous. Reaching the first summit takes nearly 30-40 minutes. Views are amazing from there. Bring binoculars.

Awesome hike that leads to an awesome view.

Fun trail with varying terrian and inclines / declines. Offers a spectacular view.

Beautiful trail with great summit views. I wouldn’t call this a moderate hike but it definitely gets your heart rate up.

Nice trail with the exception of broken glass particularly at the top. Not sure why kids can't take beer cans rather than bottles. Enjoyable and an easy hike even for a 14 yr old dog.

Be prepared for a really quick intense rock scramble! Starting from here will give you a serious workout before you loosen up... highly satisfying and you will meet some great through hikers. Bring some trail magic.

A lot of ups and downs. Definitely some parts that require a little scrambling or butt-sliding if you don't feel confident walking down rocky slopes. Not too busy either; small parking lot on the north side with a handful of cars. Unfortunately, lots of broken glass and litter (including fire works, plastic bottles) and graffiti at the top with some questionable wording... also the railing at the peak needs some work, but not a big deal. Great view at the top and got some good exercise. Not a bad time at all.

Not too challenging of a hike, but enough to get your heart pumping. great view at the top.

Just watch out for black snakes, ended up practically on top of one sunning itself on the trail and he was NOT happy.

Would definitely hike again.

Easy, quick up and down, trails were clean and clearly marked. This trail is great for families with a lot of nice big rocks to stop and rest at. Or great for a quick trail run. I would say it is on the easy side of moderate.

Steep from the trail head, but nice when you reach the trail. Well marked and maintained.

Great view cool caves

Quick trip up to the top, well marked nicely maintained, beautiful woods
