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.

Go after a decent rain to see the Falls at their best. Really beautiful surrounding area

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.

Beautiful. We made a few short cuts, and went to the waterfalls from the parking lot at the end.
Really nice trail.

Nice family hike with family and dog. Waterfall was the best park. Busy, popular spot. Nice for picnics too.

The trail wasn't well marked, but it was beautiful in the snow.

Ideal for a short hike. The trails are not marked too clearly at times but lots of foliage and great views.

This place is gorgeous! I loved it all. Trails well marked, amazing waterfall! Highly recommend!

Absolutely lovely

Was more slick then I anticipated, especially the scramble up the hill to the Devil's Oven. Markers for the first mile or so on the loop if you go clockwise are almost nonexistent.

fun trail , many variations if you want it to be longer, takes about 30 mins of a moderately steep climb to get to the view .. saw lots of wild life taking some side trails back!

Too many 3-minute hikers, noise, and picnic pieces. Skip unless winter.

The red trail takes you to the waterfall and overlook - the two must-sees here.

I wish I could give this a 3.5 stars. It's nice, not great, no outstanding features but the fern beds everywhere are nice. You're also very unlikely to see anyone else while you're out there.

Our family followed the white trail to the red trail. A couple of semi-challenging inclines for kids and out of shape mommies. Beautiful scenery and water sounds.

Well marked trail. There are some steep areas on the trail that would be hard for younger kids.

This is a gorgeous state park with trails ranging from easy to the top end of moderate for the more adventurous. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone!

Nice trail was muddy when I went.

Great day. Full of different types of terrain.

Devils hopyard will take you out of Connecticut and into Vermont with its similar river and tree views. One of Connecticut's best hikes.

Decent uphill climb going up to the vista. Made it challenging, but fun. Gorgeous view though!

A quick hike, not super challenging, good for beginners or people who don't usually like the outdoors. Would be fun to come back and have a picnic after the hike and hang out down by the water.

First time doing the orange trail. A little challenging for us but we had a great time.

Great hike! Walking along the water was nice and the view from the top was amazing. When you first get there the waterfall is right at the beginning but I suggest going for the hike as well. Orange trail was good a little muddy in some spots but not that bad.

Great hike! Relatively easy with a decent incline at the beginning.
