Little buggy but was a lovely walk. Found some really interesting mushrooms on the way. Went on a Saturday morning and didn't see anyone else.

Somewhat steep at times as you have to climb the mountain two times. The trail was definitely longer than 4.4 miles.

This trail makes you climb the mountain twice. I did this for Skys the Limit. Pretty hike but definitely exhausting. Very steep climbs you’ll have to do twice.

I did this as part of the CT DEEPs Skys The Limit challenge. Based on the DEEP description it looked like it was just going to be a quick 4 mile forest hike, so I did the Jessie Gerard trail first (which I highly recommend). I didn't realize this was a mountain, and that to get to the DEEP photo location, you essentially have to climb it twice. I also learned CT has two Ragged Mountains, this being the other one. After the Jessie Gerard, I was wiped out. No views to speak of. The Walt Landgraf trail had spots where I lost the markers but quickly found them. I was somewhat confused what the Indian Rock Shelter was supposed to be, thinking it was maybe an actual shelter built out of stone. It's really just the soapstone quarry. I continued up the trail to see if there was an actual "thing" to take my picture with, it broke off into two separate unmarked trails which didn't seem to lead anywhere. The open stone overhang was cool though. Trail conditions were good and the main trail was very well marked.

I parked in a small parking area on Park Rd. near the intersection with Center Hill Road. This family friendly hike provided a pretty good cardio workout as we slowly ascended Ragged Mountain. The trail is kept interesting by the many boulders and ledges mixed in with the woodsy areas. A particularly interesting area is the short Walt Landgraf trail that leads to the Indian Rock Shelter. Although this is considered an over and back trail, I could not bring myself to reclimb Ragged Mountain for the trip back to where I began. I opted to walk the road instead. It is a dangerous road to walk so caution is advised if you choose to return this way.

First to Review

Took Elliot Bronson (blue/red) to Walt Landgraff and the Indian Rock Shelter. Cool place! Rain and lots of snow made for slippery hike.
