Our hike happened on Friday 11/24/17. Our family did the whole trail. The trail at mile 2 and 3 were obstructed with felled trees but not anything that we couldn’t get through. At mile 5, the trail isn’t clearly marked and we ended up about a half a mile from our car at the trail head. Still a beautiful hike. The only pick I had is at mile 3, the steep climb really was hard for the ten yr old..... but she conquered it! Epic family experience!!!!

Fantastic trail with streams and small waterfall. The beginning of the trail is along Lake Zoar which is picturesque.

Will take the more challenging forest trail for the first half and the river trail for the second half next time! Took a little under 3 hours.
Song lyric graffiti was a bummer to see on a stand of trees, but hike was a really nice, manageable challenge. Some junctions are not well marked and require some quick back tracking.

Wowow. Six miles of hills and rocky outcroppings, a great workout! I almost wish I had started on the woods side versus the lake side so I wouldn't have had to deal with most of the elevation on the second half. Only one geocache if that's something you're interested in. Some of the trail markings are hard to see so I had to use my phone and map to get back on track.

Love this trail. Gorgeous views, low traffic, good blend of technical single-track, decent elevation.

Beautiful views along Lake Zoar for the first couple miles then a step ascent into the woods. Pretty nice some trail intersections are hard to notice.

This is one of my local favorites. Despite its moderate rating, overall length and terrain make this one of the more challenging hikes in the area. Interesting features include lake views, narrow gorges, boulder fields, forest flats and some steep pitches. Footing is rough in many places due to exposed tree roots and many small rocks.

I thought that this trail was just OK. The trail was stony, making it more annoying to do the constant up and downs, as this this trail isn't a straight up and then back down trail. The scenery was just OK, I think there are a few other trails in CT that might be more worth it. Definitely remember bug spray! We skipped it thinking it wouldn't be too bad, but the bugs are definitely bad.

However, for a 6 mile hike, it wasn't terrible, just not one of the better trails I've enjoyed.

This was a lot more challenging than I expected. There wasn't much total gain but was pretty hilly along the back side of the trail by the lake. There were a lot of intersecting trails and I wasn't sure which direction to go in so having this app was really helpful. Bring bug spray! The bugs were really intense. I would also recommend trail shoes or trail boots as there are a lot of really rocky spots and steep hills.

Great scenic view of the river. The waterfalls were great too. A little boring around the back end, but it is very interesting to see the assortment of types of trees ( some areas were very dense while other parts were wide open). We saw three separate snakes along the trail which added to the hike! Would do it again, but most likely just the river side.

A scenic winding trail around the peninsula that juts out into the Housatonic part of Lake Lillinonah and Pond Brook. Perfect for dogs and beginners too.
