Life-like sculptures of bears and wolves welcome your arrival to this peaceful and tranquil setting featuring open fields and dense woodlands. The park was donated to the citizens of Connecticut by the internationally renowned Huntington family.


A quintessential CT country walk. I’m so lucky to have Huntington State Park close by. It’s beautiful any time of the year.

Excellent Place to Run! It’s my go to every morning. There are so many varieties of trails at this park it’s amazing. Depending on my mood I can so 3- 8 miles and elevations can be very challenging depending on which trail you take. There’s also the possibility of getting lost but just follow the color your sticking with or always have you mike tracker on with a map and you’ll know which way to go back in no time. The perk to this park are the amazing views within each trail. It’s definitely something that makes you want to run even more and lifts the spirit.

Not rigorous, but beautiful, and a great place to decompress

Love this place; some steep parts but a great hike.

Good variety of trails - well maintained

Not much of a hike, more of a walking trail than anything. Took the blue and white trails. The white trail has you serpentine a lot. The pond is very pretty though, especially on a sunny day!

Huntington offers a wide range of trails from easy to difficult. Only setback is that it is too popular .

love this place! so many trails to explore, was lost for a bit so deff follow a map because you dont see a lot of people once your out in the trails.

Note: the color of the trail when you start at the south lot (the one with the bear and wolf sculptures) is actually the blue trail. Allltrails mistakenly notes if as the white trail.

Great place to hike with children and dogs.

Great park. I wonder if Collis Huntington would approve of anything associated with his name being open to the general public?

One of my fav locations.

Varied, easy terrain and water views make this a nice light hike. Great for dogs and/or kayaking, too.

A great place to go for a walk or a hike. Varied terrain and trails make this my go to place for a hike. I just wish they would clean the latrine.

live near so we hike these trails often. we park in the lower parking spot near Poverty Hollow rd. not many hikers use this entrance. Makes for a peaceful hike.

Well marked and defined bridle, and single tracks for trail running, mountain biking and hiking. This is my go to spot during the fall and when I want to work on my speed, or just get an easy run in.

I absolutely loved this trail! It was so peaceful and not difficult at all! Great if you want to get in a good workout!

No views that I could see but I liked the way this was set up where you could cut through to make the hike shorter at any time or continue

Extra wide trails make for lots of use by bikers and horses. The numerous narrow and unmarked trails are better.

This park has a good combination of wide, simple trails and some more challenging single track. There are some nice water features and some interesting boulders. It's nice to head of the main trails and take some of the smaller trails that zig-zag through the woods and mountain laurel.

Excellent, have hiked blue trail a couple of times a week on average over the last year.

Great park for just about everything. Have hiked just about every inch of this place, mountain biked through, scenic runs and even a few nice little swims. Great place to go out on a canoe or kayak. There is a tiny little island out on the larger body of water which has a little replica of a lighthouse. Water is deep enough to jump in from the tower, one of my favorite spots to relax by.

A nice, level trail great for walking the dogs on. Lovely trees and ponds and streams for scenery. Really picturesque on a fall afternoon, I look forward to going back and doing some trail running there.

Nice walk.

First day biking at Huntington. We hooked up with a regular who was leaving. Jared unloaded his bike and graciously gave us a 5 mile tour of the park. I loved it! Lots for everyone. In my limited experience, there seemed to be plenty of trails for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders. Can't wait to go back next weekend.

Words can't say enough. Very accessible year round, bring your dog, hike, ski, sled, boat, fish etc. Endless choice of trails.
