being a novice hiker, I really enjoyed this trail. It was a great mix of inclines and declines including me having to scale a 40ft rock at one point. Great views. At times the blue trail was a little difficult to follow but I was able to get back on track easily using app map. overall good hike. Burned a bunch of calories and frankly didnt think I was capable of scaling that rock face but I did it!

Great trail! It was a bit buggy and muddy at the end, but nothing that would complicate the trail more! Must pay attention to trail markings so you don’t get lost! Would definitely do it again!

Fun hike with nice views of the surrounding reservoirs and mountains. Saw a Bald Eagle fly by, which made the hike especially memorable.

I wasn't a fan of this trail. The markers aren't clear as when you're following the trail, it all a sudden stops. You have to search a few minutes to find it again. Trails were extremely muddy and rocky. I wouldn't recommend it for dogs or kids. I almost rolled an ankle down the rocks. I wouldn't revisit this one.

Challenging technical trail with tons of rock. Great panoramic views of bodies of water on two sides. Certainly need good hiking boots. Not recommended for children of dogs, tons of cliffs.

One of the best moderate trails I've done in CT! I followed the exact trail shown: blue-red, blue-yellow, blue, then back to blue-red. The trail was very clear and well-marked. It would be hard to get lost in the trail. It can be challenging and steep at times, but the views of so many cliff edges were amazing. It wasn't very crowded at 4:30 pm on a Monday. I will definitely be doing this again!

Loved this hike. Plenty of scenic views . We started the blue/red trail to the blue trail and switch to the yellow blue until we got back on the blue/red trail back . Definitely recommend this hike just wish it wasn’t so rocky .
