Great views, but the Heublein Tower is definitely what sets this one apart. Follows up an old dirt/gravel carriage road to the summit. The first portion of the hike wasn't as steep as I anticipated from reading reviews, but should definitely give you a decent workout nonetheless. Bring a picnic lunch and go when the tower is open. Heavily trafficked.

Good workout. Moderate uphill and down hill climbs. Took the Metacomet from West Hartford Res. 6. There is also a yellow trail from the parking area that passes through several vistas of the surrounding farmland. Hublein tower gives a 360 view with identifying guides beneath each window. Beautiful flowers and picnic areas.

Very nice maintained trail. Steep to start but levels off nicely and offers wonderful views.
