Great hike. Started at West Lane entrance. Went left at fork and took Blue/Red trail to Blue trail. Nice scenes. Great peak. Took Blue up to Blue/Yellow and cut back across East to starting point. AllTrails said we hiked 4.3 miles and burned 1431 calories. NICE. Definitely got a great workout. Would highly recommend. Can't wait to go back and do full loop.

A really awesome trail with great views. It would certainly be a 5 star review if the trails were marked better. Very easy to get lost. I have The AllTrails Pro and it bailed us out a couple of times.

Quite a picturesque hike with plenty of views, but difficult to follow the trail markers, and most of the maps along trail heads are missing.

I'm sure the trail(s) are incredible. But with ZERO trail markers, I can't tell you. The trail map at the park is a piece of wood wolith no markings at all. Walked roadways for an hour and saw nothing other than the same cars and people apparently looking for the same thing.

I did this hike with a friend for the first time and really got an intense workout. Such beautiful views overlooking the reservoir. Some rocky and steep inclines and we ended up a bit lost until we used our handy dandy map offered with this app to guide us back. We hiked a good 3+ hours and felt invigorated.

for the casual hiker it's a bit harder but worth the workout.

Great easy walk for dogs lots of benches for rest

Beautiful area and really nice trail. If you walk off the path a bit you can find some great and safe cliff jumping areas, very beautiful views too!

This was my first Solo hike and first hike I have done in about 8 years, it was easy enough for me. The trail was clean and clearly marked. The markers were clear and easy to read as long as you knew what you were looking for (make sure to Google how trail markers work if you are new). The terrain was mostly easy, there were a few parts that you had to climb up or down some rocks but nothing strenuous. it is a bit rocky in some spots but I was fine in a pair of all terrain shoes.

Super cool hike, with numerous blazes and trails throughout to make it easier or harder for what you may prefer. Castle Craig is unique to see, but the Blue Blaze trail offers some cool scenes of the reservoir.

Awesome place to relax and see the view. I drove up and on top is amazing. It overlook hubbard park and you can see i691 alot of green that is the best part check it out https://youtu.be/kyc615ImddE

I am a beginner hiker and was recommended this trail by a friend that does it often-he gave me great directions. I wanted to have a bit of a challenge without the anxiety, and this trail was perfect. As long as you have a plan going in and pay attention to the very well marked trail, you will have an awesome experience and feel very accomplished at the end. I took blue/red to blue/yellow to blue/ and picked blue/red back to the opening. Stopped to have lunch on the summit right after I picked up the blue trail. Was still done in about 3 hours.

A favorite nearby, a little longer, trail. So many beautiful views and stops along the ridge. Fun times.
We went Clockwise from Wigwam. A little confusing after the pan handle, I'm calling it the Bermuda triangle. Followed a steep rocky river bed up to Blue Orange back to parking. next time taking the cut through, short cut back.

Very nice :) My sister is not so experienced so it was tough for her to get through all the rocks, but the view was worth it and we took the orange/blue trail after the reservoir to shorten the hike. It was well-marked and the app helped a lot! Bring a lunch, lots of water, and good shoes! 4 hours, with the shortcut.

The views and difficulty level were definitely worth it BUT the trails were not well marked and this made it very difficult. I would highly recommend turning your location on and using this app/the compass feature if you actually want to follow the red/blue trail all the way through. Hike took about 4.5 hours.

Beautiful view once on the west side of the reservoir! Definitely a bit of a workout but not too challenging. The trail was well marked once on it but the trail head itself was fairly hidden once completing the paved walk on the east side. Definitely would do it again! Pretty rocky so wear sturdy shoes.

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.

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.

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.
