Go swimming and have a picnic at Burr Pond, then hike the trails in search of the bronze tablet marking Connecticut's role in the Civil War and the Industrial Revolution.

I walked this last year, haven't gone back yet. it was very nice, kind of long but plenty of nice areas to stop and rest a bit.

Was a good day to snowshoe here usually wouldn't do the entire trail in snowshoes but with 15 inches of new powder it was challenging.

Visited the first weekend of October while it was overcast and in 50s. The trees provided good coverage from occasional sprinkles. It's an easy hike that mostly hugs the pond, with occasional jaunts into thick woods. There's rocks and tree roots on the trail so be ready to do some maneuvering, but it's fairly well maintained so not an issue if you wear running shoes. The blue trail (2.5 mile loop) is a great walk pre/post wine trail explorations. It's gentle enough for young kids or those without any hiking experience who want to take in some nature and escape the city. Highly recommend for the views and coming in mid-late October as the leaves look just about ready to change. We took our Boston terrier and loved that the trails are dog friendly!
