I've been several times, good workout on inclines and old road is great for jogging. New and better view since they cut back the trees and created new sitting area.

this was a really nice place. it even has a small parking area. the entrance is just at the top of the small parking area...it's hard to see when the leaves come in

A nice option for a short hike; it was easy to find and took us about an hour (with our dog, who loved it!). As others have said, try to stay on the red (loop) train. It was easy to follow , and had some nice ups and downs. We went on a summer Saturday - there were a few other people there, but not many. Suspect views would be nicer in late fall / winter, and/or after some rain.

This trail is outstanding. It's relatively easy with some actual hiking involved as well as some walking on an old road. The overlook is just ok. Moderately traveled. We loved it! We'll be back for some trail running! (Leave the old dog at home, maybe my husband too)

It was clean, quiet, and peaceful! I went in a weekday and did not see anyone! A great place to train for longer hikes. There is an overlook that is pretty nice! A well marked, loop trail. An easy trail, good for all levels!

A gem of a hike. Very few people, nice variety of upland woods, cool old roads, great view, historic carvings and a gentle easy pace for young kids.

Good for a short hike and a decent view of Ski sundown and the new Hartford area. Don't leave the trail or else you're on posted lands. The small "foam" building is tough to find with snow on the ground. Quick hike!

gorgeous, cool ruins, be careful not to take the wrong turn and end up in someone's backyars

Trail was nice, map was very inaccurate. White trail is much longer than map shows and goes nowhere. Climb up and back down, no view. Stick to the red trail. View from top was very narrow but nice. They were logging within 50 feet of the trail including using a machine cutter so it was noisy and a bit scary near the top. No breeze, LOTs of bugs

nice easy trail to hike or perfect for trail running! the only thing is it borders private hunting land and there are plenty of warnings to stay on trail, but the gun shots in the distance creeped me out a little.
