Nothing to add to the reviews, except watch out for Town of Trumbull parking enforcement! Ridiculous.

Probably my overall favorite running spot maybe because it's so close to my home but also maybe because this whole river valley has so many interesting things to see. The real fun is south of Whitney ave. on the single track trails. There are 4 main trails, red, yellow, white, and blue. All will take you from Indian Ledge park off Whitney ave., south to Park Ln. and Daniels Farm road, approximately a 2.5 mile journey. These are famous mountain bike trails (famous enough to have been listed years ago in mountain biking guide books of the best rides in the north east!) The different trails feel so far apart from each other. They're not. But they seem like they are. In fact the whole place gives this wonderful impression of being much bigger than it is. You feel miles away from civilization even though you are probably no further than a half mile from a highway to the East and a river with a short climb to houses on the West. It's like a whole microcosm of terrain shoved into this one 2.5 mile stretch. There are spots that are charming, almost magical, and the place begs you to come back to do more exploring.

A couple of things to be aware of:
1. If you hear pistol fire, it is from a local police shooting range alongside a section of the red trail. It's not used frequently but when it is . . . you will know. The area is enclosed by fencing and there are small barracks and targets etc. So it's not a concern on the trail.
2. The trails are trafficked by mountain bikers and a significant enough number of hikers of all ages that I have never NOT seen at least one other person on a trip. In fact, I've often seen some of the same people on different occasions. Most of this traffic is on the white trail and blue trails.
3. Many people walk/run their dogs here (including me sometimes) and they are almost always off leash.

The trail had a lot of inclinations and some steep hills

Great for an after work walk!! Not hard but great to be outdoors and near a lake. They charge to park so that’s the only pitfall!!!

A beautiful easy walk.

You can now take this trail all the way to Beardsley Park, Bridgeport.
We rode our bikes from Monroe (Pepper street) to Beardsley Park, Bridgeport.
Coming out of Indian Ledge Park Trumbull, heading south towards Bridgeport, the trail becomes a side walk (still safe for biking/walking) then crosses under Rt. 25 connecting the new portion with tunnels (very nicely done) past the Trumbull Marquis cinemas to Beardsley Park.
This is a good trail for all ages.

Short trails fun run nicely maintained

Warning: There is a nice, gently rolling, and paved walking and bike path that starts in Old Mine Park, but the red hiking path outlined in the All Trails app is definitely NOT EASY, as labeled in the All-Trails app. That loop is a nightmare, strewn with leaves, branches, large rocks, and at least 2 treacherous drops that require a walking stick or other support. If you're looking​ for an easy hike, stick to the paved path, do not use the path shown in red in the app!

Love this place for easy waking, running or biking. 1/2 paved the rest is nice compact dirt so it's easy if you've got disabilities but want to get outdoors.

Awesome

It's such a beautiful trail, but BEWARE that unless you are a Trumbull resident with a parking pass, you can't park in the main lot. We didn't realize and got a $25.00 ticket :(

This trail was pretty easy. I took my 2 1/2 year old with me (then again she loves exploring). The trails were a little narrow at times and there are trees knocked down in some areas. Overall it was a decent walk.

I grew up in Trumbull and used to do this all of the time. Awesome trails, especially if you go off the main on and over the river. Some great swimming spots too.

The mines are awesome. They have fences blocking them but it is like a giant spiral with mines that go up and up until the top of the mountain
