I love everything about these woods. The trails are all very well marked and Maintained. The views are incredible. Make sure to make the trek down to lost lake!

Very small trail. I usually enter on the Stony Creek side near a field. the entrance is directly across the street from the library. this trail is definitely all about the views. goes over an old bridge and has a path that goes over the water overlooking the ocean. has a couple of side trails through the woods that are also pretty easy. I really like this trail a lot for the casual walk out side with tons of visual stimulation.

It's a very easy trail that goes along a pond. I used to fish there as a kid. usually a lot of people walking dogs. does a loop around. very easy casual trail

Short and sweet. If you have bad knees (like me) and have trouble going up stairs I would take Advil first!! lol Take your time and don't get discouraged. definately worth the walk. lots of large steps but there is a hand rail if you need it! gorgeous views!

The Westville Feeder is just a quick out & back that you can easily fit into a morning or afternoon. As an add-on to this feeder trail, I recommend continuing onto the Regicides Trail which leads you up a short ways to Judges Cave where Edward Whalley and William Goffe hid out in the 1660s trying to evade retribution from Charles II whose father (King Charles I) they had sentenced to death in the 1640s.

A good trail for the area, well-wooded and several trail options for different hiking needs. From the Spring Street parking lot, go up the paved road on the right, it quickly becomes a dirt trail (The White/Carriage Trail). From there, take Pink up to the summit. Decent inclines. I went up the stone staircase section and did not see any trail blaze on my way up. Summit views are of Hartford and Manchester, can see pretty far on a clear day. Roundtrip took me less than an hour.

My absolute favorite go-to hike. Great for all skill levels with beautiful views of the lake along the loop trail.
