The trail head at Cross Highway starts in the valley, parking is scarce and the trail is not in good shape. The trail head at Tunxis Trail North is also in need of repair, but is the best place to park.

This hike was terrible. terrible trail head if you can find it as it pretty much is across from someones house on a residential road where you kinda wander into the woods. half the time you felt you were walking through peoples property. POOR markings in most areas. got completely lost at the end where markings drop out of sight completely. ended up walking a mile on the busy road to get back to the car. buggy, saw plenty of mosquitos from surrounding marsh lands snakes, frogs etc. Would not recommend, would not return.
