Narrow trail, gorgeous forest and not too many ups and downs. The abandoned zoo and swamp add some nice viewing.

Saw a pond. Took some pics. Left. Better things to see in CT, but nice exercise for the locals.

Quick easy trail. There’s a downed tree at the beginning you have to walk around

Not very well marked but if you follow the numbers you're fine. The cages are cool.

Not my favorite... very buggy & trail markers were faded. Kids liked seeing old zoo remnants.

Trail markers a faded and bi-secting trails are not marked so difficult to determine. But overall a nice easy hike
