In addition to the blue-blazed trail, both red- and yellow-blazed trails ascend to the ridgeline of Mt. Lamentation. The yellow trail ascends from the white-blazed trail to a poorly marked intersection with the Mattabesett Trail near one of the best overlooks. The red trail turns sharply away from the blue trail as it passes a deep canal cut through stone, passes by an old shelter, and intersects the blue-blazed trail at the ridge line.

Reasonable trail. Very well traveled with some elevation. Rock toward the top makes for slippery footing in rain. Good one for family.

Nice place. Easy access from 91 but, far enough that there are no traffic sounds from the highway. Quiet enough to hear nature.

Hiked the trail Sunday, 3/4/18 , with three others and enjoyed it very much. We followed the blue marked trail to Mount Lamentation and returned on the red trail.

Just did this on Sept 9th with ideal weather. Brought the whole fam - wife & 3 kids (9, 7, and 5). Not too tough for the 9 and 7 year olds. Great views at the top - and some decent slopes on the up and down. Not too hard or long but good challenge for the fam.
