Former orchard bequeathed to town of Southington for residents and visitors. Wooded areas and some wetlands, with a decent view now and then.

Nice trails, variety of terrain, fields, woods, stream crossing with no bridge.
Trails need much better marking. Many splits with no markings.
Dog came home with a dozen ticks and didn't even go off the trail.
Plenty of poison ivy. Watch what you touch.

We've walked this trail a few times and love it! The trails need a little cleanup from the last storm but i know there is an Earth Day event there, 4/22/18. Im not sure of the exact time but we will be there from Bradley Mountain Farm with some of our goats doing a herding demonstration 1-3pm!!

I like this trail very much. It's a nice beautiful walk and the dog love it. I'm so glad that it's there. Southington needs more of this and less over development.

This place was awful, no places to stop and rest, no trail markers and a lot of split trails. It's easy to get lost here. There's not really a sense of direction. We ended up on the golf course, exhausted and confused.

a nice short hike, I loved when it became forested and lots of squirrels were having a fur-fest

It was fine. Very muddy, rutted vehicle tracks on much of the trail, and almost zero trail markings.
