Case Mountain provides several trails for hiking and mountain biking. At the summit, is a fantastic view of the Hartford skyline and the whole CT river valley-particularly awesome at sunset. The ascent is relatively strenuous, and in the Spring and Summer months, mosquitos are plentiful.

This hike is super easy and offers different trails. You can go straight up to the top or take a more scenic route. The end scenery is great- You see all of hartford and Manchester!
Overall easy and fun to do for beginners. Just keep track of which entrance you came from and the trail you hiked. It's kinda easy to get lost coming down but if you pay attention, you're solid!

A good trail for the area, well-wooded and several trail options for different hiking needs. From the Spring Street parking lot, go up the paved road on the right, it quickly becomes a dirt trail (The White/Carriage Trail). From there, take Pink up to the summit. Decent inclines. I went up the stone staircase section and did not see any trail blaze on my way up. Summit views are of Hartford and Manchester, can see pretty far on a clear day. Roundtrip took me less than an hour.

Best in the area - less crowded than Talcott Mountain or Sleeping Giant, with lots of different marked and unmarked trails so you can combine routes for a longer outing or take a different route every trip. there is a wider, gravel option (carriage) but also more rocky paths. Yellow & pink trails are my favorites, but blue is good too!
