Great hike but definitely not 3.6. Blue blaze trail is 4.4 miles if do the red trail it will be 6.5 miles. I don’t know why people are saying you scramble rocks because there is no rock scrambling. Straight up hill for about .5 miles but not too difficult! Great ruins of the old mine. Stay to your left when you start the trail unless you want to do uphill on your way back.

Wow! The first half is more of a hike, with a good scrabble up a steep rocky incline, and the back half took us through a flat woodland road. The historic points of interest were great. Please don't drop anything down the mines, let the earth trolls sleep! :)

Went hiking here during Labor Day weekend after seeing the trail listed as one of Connecticut's best. The mix of terrain and the ruins in the first part of the loop made for an interesting trail but the second half was flat an dull. More of a nature walk than a hike. The signage wasn't very good either as everyone seemed to come to where the gorge bridge should have been and then looked very confused and walked away. Overall though, it was a great hike. Beware of parking though as there isn't much. You can park on the dirt road but it is narrow so be careful.

Nice mix of terrain with a few moderate climbs. Interesting historic site with remains of the mining facility from the 19th century. We look forward to seeing it again.

Really cool trail with lots of neat things to see. Just enough climbing mixed with flat walking trails. Looking forward to going back.
