Activities: Hiking, Letterboxing, Hunting

great everyday hiking/walking trails. if you go to the trails on the right huge fern field in the woods

This place is great. Initially I had a challenging time figuring out the entrance and came across a ton of bear traps... but then I found my way. Loved the little offshoots to include the boardwalk to the pond and view of the beaver dam, the waterfall and the fire lookout. Wide and well-groomed train path. Everything is exceptionally well marked and it shows that a lot of effort goes into the maintenance of this park. Great place to take kids to burn off some energy.

Make sure to explore some of the offshoots.
Check out the fire tower this trail will lead into the center of the loop.
Check out the waterfall as well!

Easy to follow trail. Mostly walking with some slight hills.

Beautiful walk, some gentle hills. Easy and quick with some pretty water scenery.

While i hike a portion of this trail regularly locals have informed me that hunters cameras in the last 6 weeks have caught images of a Mountain Lion and have told me to excercise extreme caution while in the area and to not get on the trail after sunset.

Great place to bring your leashed dog!

Great trail with lots of stops on the way. A fire tower with a great view, a waterfall, and a beautiful pond. You feel like you're completly lost in the woods but it's a loop so it's easy to find your way back. I'll definitely be back again!

Overgrown and not well maintained

First time hiking last year here.

Nice wide open trails with beautiful views on the side trails.

Great for dog walking!

Easiest way to get to white rock is drive to end of Ciccio rd and there is a trail to white rock. I grew up in that area, have not been up there in such a long time. The rock is just above that area, so if you were coming from roaring brook and the falls, you can just walk pass the reservoir and try to find it. It may be tough though, its kindof hidden as i remember. And its pretty far. It is such a great place though!

How exactly do you get to the ridge? More specifically "white rock"?

Easy and family friendly

I visit Sessions Woods regularly since I first moved to CT in '09. I live 15 minutes away from it in the City of Bristol. It's nice to get away from the urban setting and appreciate the peace and tranquility of nature. There is ample parking area and information center. Though there are several trails, I usually walk the Beaver Pond Trail. Part of the trail is along the stream and it's a pleasure to see and hear the soothing water streams. There are also mini trails to explore, that branch out from the main one,. My favorite are the Beaver pond, the fire tower view point and the Waterfall (mind your steps going down to the waterfall, it is steep). In the Fall, you can appreciate the leaves changing color and the fallen leaves create a path of bright yellow and red which appears glorious to say the least. I have a special place in my heart for Sessions Woods and I hope you have an enjoyable time visiting there too!

scenic but a little too easy if you are interested in a workout. great for kids

Love it so very pretty. Great kid friendly easy trail. Great for families!

Beautiful! Don't miss the Boardwalk.

It was a great trail with several side trails off the main loop. There is a waterfall, wildlife observatory, and so much more I have to go back. My opinion start with the beaver trail entrance and explore the side trails as you go. Terrain is pretty good as it's mostly gravel if you stay on the main trail (people bring strollers/kids/dogs). Few tougher inclines too.

This was a great trail with lots of options and trails to take. Although it doesn't look like it on the app, This did loop around. Great incline, not extreme but just enough to get a really good workout. There are some sections with lots of rocks. Would def do again

Did a good quick 12 miles today. I enjoyed the trail, it was well marked, gave me some nice views, and a couple little challenging up and downs. Look forward to some more time on the Tunxis trail.

Pretty nice to trail run this, hills can be a challenge. This is my go to spot till I explore more

This was a very pleasant well marked trail. Excellent for families. Offers a cool rock waterfall, cool fire tower to climb, beaver dams to view, small wooden boardwalk surrounded by lily pads and turtles. There is one porta potty on the trail right before the turn off to the wildlife blind and the Firetower.

It's such an easy nice walk with different options.

This is a beautiful and easy trail to walk with anybody.

I love this hike. There are so many things to see right off the trail like the waterfalls, fire tower, beaver marsh, etc.

Good quick hike in my neighborhood. Great for starting off. Good for the family. Under 3 mile hike in 45 minutes if you don't go off the main trail.

Had a great hike today, if was my second time here. Main gravel trail loop is about 3 miles and a mix of hills and flat terrain, very scenic and a great place for a hike. I'll definitely be back!
