I wish I could give this a 3.5 stars. It's nice, not great, no outstanding features but the fern beds everywhere are nice. You're also very unlikely to see anyone else while you're out there.

Amazing felt like I wasn't even in CT! Worth veering off the path.

As a nature reserve, this is a wonderful place to take a walk around. Sometimes the path was obstructed by fallen trees or brambles - not surprising as I went in early spring and there probably hasn't been a good opportunity to clean up after winter. The brook is absolutely lovely. Trail is alright.

A pleasant nature walk that was 2.2 miles by my gps. It took us 1 1/2 hours to do the loop with stops for photos along the way. It begins with a drop to the brook and then an easy climb back up to the ridge top. Lots of flowers and bird songs. Wear boots, it can get muddy in places.
