This is a very nice hike. It has good views. I wouldn’t rate it “hard”. Depends upon your frame of context. It IS one of the more technical trails in the general Hartford area. A lot of ups and downs and some rocks. Good fun here. Don’t let the rating scare you. It’s a nice feeling looking back at the towers from anywhere in the Hartford area and say “I did that”
Overall good trail. A little steep at times, good vistas. I did route six to the Nike Missile silo and back. I didn't have too much time to explore but the Missile silo wasn't much to see from the trail, but pinnacle rock was cool. LOTS OF POISON IVY! So watch out. It also gets slippery in the rain, especially the roots.
