Hiked the Western side up the Metacomet trail over to Talcott Mt. State park until I came to Rt. 185 next to Penwood State park. The trails around the MDC 6 are perfect for runners and walkers as they are very level and low impact. I looped around the Eastern side on return, to find a clear cut view of the mountains covered in large evergreens. Seems to be very popular but everyone seemed very respectful and the surroundings were pretty peaceful. There is also a loop via the Metacomet across 44 with an old pavement parking area. Careful though lots of traffic rushing around and limited signage warning of hikers crossing. This seems to be the case with the New England Trail.

It's so nice to stroll a relatively flat path. This is definitely kid friendly. My 4 year old made it two and a half miles which is a testament to how easy the way is. The views are great, especially by the water plant. You can see all the way to Hartford!
