Definitely some challenging incline areas for true novices. We did the loop clockwise & towards the end, there were some areas not clearly marked due to trees falling, but that was a challenge my kids enjoyed! Also some boggy/wet areas but those will dry out in due time.

Good, but lots of dogs and no one keeps them on a leash. Fun, quick trail with lots of options.

Good parking at end of street. Pass the Glastonbury outdoor shooting range about .5 mile into trail. Gets very close to Rt 2 before a steep incline followed by fantastic ridge hiking. Plenty of little streams for the pups to drink from

Great hike, it was wet in spots but a fun trail. Looking forward to coming back in warmer weather.

loved it, scenic moderate hike, nice workout going back up the mountain!

It’s a great walk. Not to difficult and some nice views of the sound.

Gentle terrain great for kids and dogs. However be prepared with bug and tick repellent, lots of swampy areas nearby to allow for lots of mosquitoes. The trail is well defined and is mostly dry and easy walking.

Beautiful trail! It gets steep at points, but the view is absolutely worth it! The trail shown on the app is actually part of the blue trail that intersects with the red trail to finish off the loop. I went in April, so parts of the trail were really muddy on the way down, but it was still a great trail that was labeled decently!

Besides for the giant rain made pond, and not having GPS, which was totally fine, we decided to go for it! We were soaked, feet wet and muddy, but the falls are worth it! They were thunderous and spectacular!

Beautiful trail, scenic vistas, well marked trails. My only complaint is many looping intersecting trails. Some what confusing figuring out directions to continue on.

I would rate this more a moderate than easy. It is an incline all the way up, that if you have bad knees, you start to feel it. Its also a State park, so come summer, a fee Im sure is charged. Paths are a little confusing if you have not been here before. Real nice walk through the woods though.

I love to run the trails at Case! Great exercise and fun hike for beginners!

Nice hike. Loose rocks can make it a little nerve-wracking at times if you have a fear of heights. Easy-lower moderate in my opinion if you have a sense of adventure. Will do again soon!

Hiked this on a cold and wet day. Some challenging spots where boots and a good grip are useful. Overall a nice hike for a good workout.

We tried to start this hike from the southern parking lot in Connecticut, but there had been a lot of rain and the trail was flooded just past the parking lot. Not wanting to have wet shoes for the rest of the day. We drove around to the norther parking lot off Campbell Falls Rd. We started our hike form the parking lot just above the Falls. The hike was very short but steep. The frozen ground and Ice made it challenging especially for my 77 year old father. The view from the bottom of the Falls was very impressive, we also followed a side trail up the dirt road and bridge directly above the falls.

Hiked this counter clockwise.About 3/4 quarters of the hike is logging road but decent views to the East when you reach the peak of Pine Mountain .Solid rock ground at the top

I hiked this one a couple weeks ago. I would rate its difficulty as moderate.Nice forest setting but no peaks or outcrops to view the landscape.The caves were pretty cool but a little treacherous to climb down to. I was disappointed not to see the Indians in the cave.We must of arrived while they were out hunting game

Hancock Brook Trail is open. Trail does not cross river over abandoned bridge but proceeds North along the side of the quarry area. Trail runs North about 1.5 miles following Hancock Brook. It then swings to the left and makes the return trip South on top of the ridge. One of my favorite trails especially when there has been a recent rain.

Awesome hike. First of 2018 spring, it’s a tough hike for beginners. A lot of jagged rock on the trail paths wear boots or trails shoes, your feet will get beat up with regular sneakers. It’s challenging enough for more experienced hikers for a short trail for that reason, some great areas/cliffs to climb as well, and on the hike some areas where you are nearly climbing. Great views of reservoir and more. Also cliff jumping area if you dare and need to cool off.

Great hiking here! Gives you a great work out and our dog loves it too!

Mt Higby is one of the best hikes that i have ever done especially because of the scenic views from the top and the hike trial itself. Awesome one...

nice easy hike, well marked trails, great for kids and dogs

Nice views of The Sound.

Beautiful workout

There's a super difficult scramble in the very beginning, but then it levels out and is not that hard, just a bunch of ups and downs. We had planned to take the blue trail there and then the violet trail back, but the violet trail turned out to be just a simple walk, so we quickly switched back to the blue. Very fun overall, and a nice challenge! It took us 3.5 hours round-trip, with about 30 min of lunch.

Pretty trail with easy access to salt water lake and adjoining marsh. We saw a great egret and other birds. Close to train and houses, so quiet, but you can hear civilization. Trails can be confusing - make sure to get a map. The white trail had several offshoots which were also part of the white trail. If we hadn't had a map it would have been pretty confusing.

It’s not very long so it’s an easy way to combine a hike with lunch/dinner at the casino.

great place for kids
