We came the week before the museum and castle were open for the summer, so I can't speak to those, but the trails were sub par. They mostly just intersect across a small section of woods. There's a good view of the river and the castle is cool on the outside. I wouldn't recommend here for the hiking.

Really easy and had a great view.

Beautiful view, lovely place to go see, but it's not so much of a hike, when you drive up you see the building right away it wasn't as exciting to just see it and walk away

Beautiful area. A bit spooky near the castle. Very enchanting.

Fun little area, trails are easy for kids and newbies.

Fun place to hang out

Such a fun day!

Short, easy trails that are usually full of people and children. The trails in the woods are not well marked. When I feel like a quick stroll it's nice with some lovely views. But it's not great when my dogs and I have serious energy to burn, or when I don't feel like company.

Easy family hike. Short trails. Trails aren't marked very well and there are several off shoots that aren't marked. Nice views of the CT River from the castle.

Nice, very short hike down to the Connecticut River and back up. Very simple hike. The castle has amazing views of the river
