Me and my husband went on a day hike to Habbard Park. I was very disappointed at the map of the park which was kept near the parking lot as there was nothing that can be seen on that board. Then I noticed people walking and then followed them to the white trail... After a 30 minute walk I took a sharp left on to the blue trail. That trail was narrow and desserted. When we reached at the top of the trail the view from there was outstanding... On our way back we were only able to see the blue tail and was forced to hike that back... But after a minute or two of descending we understood its very risky and again we went back up to search for white trail. I was not able to find and took help of another family hiking. As they adviced to take the paved road we took that.. But again after half mile there was an intersection saying castle and radio tower. There was nothing written which should be taken to go back to the park or any evidence of white trail. We were so confused and took the road down hill thinking that will be the road back. It took about 3 miles to reach back to the park. Later we understood the fact that white trail was starting from the castle Craig. Anytime planning to go to this park please try to have a map of the trails handy as the trails are bit confusing for the newbies.

Nice place to take your dog for a walk or go for a stroll - there are two paths you can take. It’s a good alternative to walking on the bike path if that’s a bit further of a drive. It’s also a good spot to go snowshoeing when there’s snow.

I stuck to the blue and blue/red trails. This hike has it all. Some scrambling, streams, views and plenty of rocks. Will definitely be back!

The trail was awesome. The Red/blue trail led us to the blue trail ( Metacomet) and eventually to the summit which had a great view of the reservoir. However, once we came down from the summit, we never saw the Red/ blue trail and proceeded along the blue blazed trail onto Carey road. It was getting dark fast and we had to take the road 3 miles out of our way to get back to the Ragged Mt. Preserve parking area.

Really beautiful trail and awesome views. Blue trail was steep and rocky. Great spring hike.

Easy and clean.

Una gran aventura ..

Great workout! The blue/red trail around the mountain is challenging even for an avid hiker but the view from the top is definitely worth it! The trail is well-marked most of the time but the marks are sometimes too far apart and it could be easy to get lost; this is true especially around the summit. It's quite rocky; so, make sure you have hiking boots/shoes on for stability. Rock climbing is also part of the menu with some additional dose of jumping over the streams, fallen trees, and steep, rocky downhills. Trekking pole is recommended.

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

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.

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.

I hiked this trail today, first real day of spring. relatively easy, a little muddy but certainly passable. the views are very good, trails well marked, and a few casual hikers with dogs along the way.

Great hike. Had to hop over the railing on side of road to get on trail by the water, then walking up and along the ridge before arriving at Castle Craig. Our trip in mid-March was snowy.

Very wet this time of year so recommend water proof boots great viewpoints and with the AllTrails app you can take on path or wander a bit then find your way. Enjoyed this one.

We did the northern area of the trails. I like it because there’s a few route choices. We also went off trail and found a nice waterfall. It’s easy to go off trail at least in late March this year.

This is definitely a harder trail for those who are just starting out. The trail itself isn’t steep but includes features such as a little bit of rock climbing and rocky grounds that some people might not be used to (as opposed to some trails that are pretty much a dirt pathway). BUT the views on top are amazing. The trails are all very clearly marked (something not all places have). The red/blue trail offers a hike along the mountain’s edge which means not only can you see the water but there are several places along the way that offer great photo opportunities. Definitely worth checking out when you have a good amount of time - the trail itself isn’t too long but it will take several hours to complete

Excellent Hike!!! It exceeded my expectations! Great Views! A Great Workout and fun to be with friends! Happy Exploring

Great trails with a great view awesome Sunday afternoon for the whole family.

I don’t know if it is supposed to be a secret to be discovered on your own once you get here, because two minutes into my walk I realized that the green grass and trees around me was a run down golf course and I was walking on a cart path. I have not seen anyone mention this on any of the posts. It was a good walk with enough hills to stretch the legs.

greet hike red/blue trails are very well marked, the blue trail isn't marked as well but still easy enough to follow. I was pleasantly surprised how clean the peaks were we saw very little trash up there. We took a couple long breaks to enjoy the views and finished the loop in less than 4 hours.

great hike

great hike, it was very wet and muddy the day I went, part of the trail bring you right down the middle of a brook. the hardest part is definitely from castle Craig to the towers. awesome hike overall and very well marked and easy to follow.

great for the winter a valley turned completely into ice

I hiked here today and it was great! It had snowed last night, so the trail was coated, but it was only moderately slippery in a few spots. The views on this trail are incredible - there are a bunch of overlooks! Definitely recommend this hike.
