It's a very easy trail. I went Sunday morning Feb, 5th. Very windy along the water. Definitely needed winter gear. Beautiful view. However, I got there at maybe 10am so there was some foot traffic from other walkers. If you're looking for some solitude, this may not be the spot at that hour. Maybe get there a bit earlier.

Very pretty views throughout, busy in the summer, super peaceful in the winter

We took the trail to Talcott mountain via Metacomet trail. Follow trail about 1 mile then Metacomet on the left. We went up to the tower and back down around the reservoir, about 6.3 miles. Obviously goes from easy to easy/moderate based on the climb. Great for families, about 3 hours taking your time.

Nice ride for first time out in a while. A couple of small hills to challenge you with great downhill pay back!
