Took Yellow trail up to blue to the stake. Great views on Yellow. Took road to park and then red trail to finish. 5.2 miles. love this hike. Took 8 ticks off my dog. Little slippery due to wet leaves. Poles helped allot.

HikingGreat!

Relatively flat trail with lookouts to the lake. Less strenuous than Talcott across the street.

Very clean, less Rocky section of the NET. Not much to see but a great walk-in-the-woods type hike.

Mountain bikingGreat!Rocky

A terrific trail to go Mountain Biking. Starting off, the incline is pretty steep causing for great workout. The colored paths are easy to follow, and the trail leads one throughout the amazing course with great sights along the way passing through a pond, and then through the mountain. A very great experience!

Easy to follow paved trail. Make sure you look out for the posts that indicate landmarks/features. We almost passed the overlook with the beautiful view. Overall, I would definitely go back again.
