What a great hike! Lots of variety: easy in spots, rocky, steep, and challenging in others, boardwalks, wooden bridges, wide open fields, and the top is somewhat reminiscent of being in Acadia. My wife and I did this with our 2 and half year old who walked over half the way up before needing to be put in the backpack for some of the more complex, rocky parts. We did the meeker trail from Christian road following the yellow markings to the lookout (the shorter steeper trail) then following the blue markings to the lake view. Awesome trail! This is one of the better hikes we’ve done in CT as far as complexity/overall enjoyment!
