Lovers Leap is a walk-in park with hiking trails, scenic vistas and historic ruins. The 160 acre park is divided into three sections, each featuring a different appreciation for the park history.

Short hike with easy access to beautiful views of Lake Lillinonah. You can cross the bridge and take the wide gravel path straight up to the largest cliff, but there are other awesome viewing spots farther up the mountain if you don't mind steeper trails. Lots of interesting building remains and historic sites too, for those who are into the history of the region!

Great little trail..beginning is unique by crossing over one of 4 iron bridges that still exist in Connecticut. There are also other hiking options in the park with several other trails

They are crazy rating this easy. The hill you have to climb both directions is anything but.

Blue trail offered great views however, this was a extremely easy hike- not for avid hikers.

Relatively short and easy terrain. The history behind this location is also a plus. There is a nice parking lot so you should have no problem finding a place to park. There's also one bathroom which is convenient, not the cleanest when I was there but it will suffice. While I was there we took the blue trail which had a beautiful view overlooking the water at the top. Kid and pet friendly. You can go fishing as well.

Take the Blue Trail up the Hill, you will be rewarded with a terrific view.

It has pretty views and relaxing stroll. I wasn't able to take the off trails, which made the hike very short.

Great pretty trail. I loved the views and my dog enjoyed a little swim in the lake off one of the trails. Can be a workout if you choose the right trail to follow.

This is a very cool place! Walked the blue trail which was easy but had awesome views! Saw some deer on the path which was cool. Kids will love it however very steep embankments!

This hike is not a hike for advanced hikers. It is meant for family's and cute dates. Nice place, but for avid hikers don't waste your time

Skys the limit challenge brought me here. OK hike to the Scenic Vista leaves were very slippery and the view was cool. Hit up a few geocaches along the way. Not too much to bring me all the way back out here again but worth the check out if your in the area.

This is a VERY family friendly hike. easy terrain, little incline in most spots. Trailhead parking is ample and free, and has a compost toilet that honestly is the cleanest i have ever seen hiking across the country at big and small trails. The first thing you encounter steps from the parking lot at the trailhead is a list of signs telling stories of the trail and the bridge - cool read and educational. Then comes a totally cool red iron bridge. Photo worthy for sure, with bright green water running beneath it. . Great path, forest views and a great view a the top of the Housatonic river and CT countryside. Lots of space at top to have lunch or a snack. Main trail is very well marked with blazes on trees. However beware there is a network of tiny little trails that wind off of the main trails that are hardly marked at all and very confusing. Saw the chimney from the burnt down house and a piece of the castle. Great fall family hike, not too long not too strenuous, no complaints from the kiddies.
