Nice views of fields. Off Rt. 44 parking. Hiked metacomet from Rt. 6 across from pinnacle mt. parking area. Some paved roads through suburban areas...but that's the New England trail. There are a few reservoirs you pass which offer a change in scenery to the woods. Only a few elevated vistas in the beginning with some visibility. Some beautiful Red Tailed Hawks, numerous colored dragonflies and the fact that it didn't down pour on me made it a decent adventure.

Definitely more bike oriented, trails are pretty open not at secluded as I like. Trails are slightly confusing and unmarked most likely due to bike traffic

Metacomet was an amazing trail! Lots of twists and turn bridges and water. A little challenging so Moderate is defiently the correct rating. A lot of intresting wildlife and cool rocks. We really RECOMEND THIS HIKE.
