The beautifully appointed Heublein family dining room awaits hikers at the top of the mountain in the Heublein tower.

Great place to hike year round. Views are some of Connecticut’s best. Heublein tower is always fun. Connects to Metacomet trail when u want to extend the trek. Always a family favorite.

Easy hike and good views. It's a bit crowded though. There are lots of families and people of all ages on the trail. There is a picnic spot near the tower.

Awesome views

Hiked with my nearly 3 year old on my back. Very fun, relaxing and gorgeous views.

great hike with amazing views!

Absolutely beautiful scene once you hike to the very top. Breathtaking view once the leaves start turning color. Easy hike for all levels.
Many events scheduled throughout the Season.

Short, fairly easy hike with huge rewards. Excellent views all along the ridge line. Views from tower are spectacular.

I found a nice spot to meditate overlooking the town

Nice views on a relatively easy hike (minus the first 5 minutes of walking straight up hill).

Extremely popular on Labor Day, trails were filled. Nice view for little climb. No water fountain at tower!

Great hike, an easy up and down with great views

Great views, but the Heublein Tower is definitely what sets this one apart. Follows up an old dirt/gravel carriage road to the summit. The first portion of the hike wasn't as steep as I anticipated from reading reviews, but should definitely give you a decent workout nonetheless. Bring a picnic lunch and go when the tower is open. Heavily trafficked.

Good workout. Moderate uphill and down hill climbs. Took the Metacomet from West Hartford Res. 6. There is also a yellow trail from the parking area that passes through several vistas of the surrounding farmland. Hublein tower gives a 360 view with identifying guides beneath each window. Beautiful flowers and picnic areas.

Very nice maintained trail. Steep to start but levels off nicely and offers wonderful views.

great views! enjoyed the hike.

It's was a worth the walk.I would recommend it to anyone

So beautiful!!

Beautiful views of foliage in the fall. Relatively straightforward hike
