Users have reported that non-resident cars without a permit (if not from Trumbull) are ticketed in the parking lot. A nice short trail with some interesting historic mines. The trail surface is partially paved/partially dirt and typically at least three feet wide. The estimated grade is steep, mostly between 5% and 15%.

Great loop for kids and dogs. Shorter but there’s plenty of rocks to climb and other paths to explore

The trail wasn’t long or difficult, but it wasn’t marked. I needed the AllTrails app a couple times to keep me from going off course.

Trails are for Trumbull residents only. I got a ticket for not having a permit to park in the parking lot. Trails were great. Would love to come again but unfortunately we will not be coming back. We are not residents of Trumbull

Parking was limited to Trumbull residents only. Really wish I had known this before driving out there. Found an alternative after a few minutes of search on the rail trail..

loved this trail/park. we hiked first which was pretty short and easy with some inclines. you can make the hike longer by going off the main trail and exploring. we then walked the bike path. I'm not a biker but if I were I would bike here. the path is wide and well paved. not crowded and completely shaded. u can see the streams from the bike path and even sit on boulders to watch the waterfall and rushing water. will be back.

Great for walking. Dogs permitted. Tons of people. No masks very concerning while they work out next to you or run bye . The park is an amazing artifact of history but I’d go when no one would be there. Take the majestic feeling of the forest away. Going to look for the mine here another day.

I got a little lost and had to scramble down some slippery slopes because I didn’t want to backtrack. Guess I should have paid better attention to the map and trail marks.

Nice quick trail. Not well kept by the town. Got a $25.00 ticket for not having a permit. I thought all parks in Connecticut are free with our registration. Guess Trumbull is special.

Nothing to add to the reviews, except watch out for Town of Trumbull parking enforcement! Ridiculous.

Running

Probably my overall favorite running spot maybe because it's so close to my home but also maybe because this whole river valley has so many interesting things to see. The real fun is south of Whitney ave. on the single track trails. There are 4 main trails, red, yellow, white, and blue. All will take you from Indian Ledge park off Whitney ave., south to Park Ln. and Daniels Farm road, approximately a 2.5 mile journey. These are famous mountain bike trails (famous enough to have been listed years ago in mountain biking guide books of the best rides in the north east!) The different trails feel so far apart from each other. They're not. But they seem like they are. In fact the whole place gives this wonderful impression of being much bigger than it is. You feel miles away from civilization even though you are probably no further than a half mile from a highway to the East and a river with a short climb to houses on the West. It's like a whole microcosm of terrain shoved into this one 2.5 mile stretch. There are spots that are charming, almost magical, and the place begs you to come back to do more exploring. A couple of things to be aware of: 1. If you hear pistol fire, it is from a local police shooting range alongside a section of the red trail. It's not used frequently but when it is . . . you will know. The area is enclosed by fencing and there are small barracks and targets etc. So it's not a concern on the trail. 2. The trails are trafficked by mountain bikers and a significant enough number of hikers of all ages that I have never NOT seen at least one other person on a trip. In fact, I've often seen some of the same people on different occasions. Most of this traffic is on the white trail and blue trails. 3. Many people walk/run their dogs here (including me sometimes) and they are almost always off leash.

Great for an after work walk!! Not hard but great to be outdoors and near a lake. They charge to park so that’s the only pitfall!!!
