Snow covered trail but nicely packed. Beautiful.

Loved this loop! Trail is very clearly marked.
Beautiful- Still snow on the ground, but packed down from hikers so slippery on climbing sections.
About .5 mile is on a neighborhood road before you head back into the woods.
Lots of streams for dogs to drink.

Great for a quick, pretty hike with picnic.

Pleasant hike, not too hard, nice river and other interesting features, as well as a nice overlook.

Beautiful walk with my dog!

Walked it today.Kind of muddy but not difficult .Took about an hour .Part of the walk is on the road along the Farmington river .Coming out to the road on the west side of the loop was clearly marked with an orange arrow sign indicating to turn left and walk the road but was not marked at all at the re entry point just before the overpass where the trail will climb steeply .You need to pay attention to see it.

Nice short hike for a Sunday afternoon. the views from the tower are great and there are some great outlooks along the way

Very cool trail with some nice views along the way. Parking is limited if you park on Route 6. Definitely want to go again

Great trail!

At first, the trail is easy, then there is a moderate ascent, and it is steep at the very end. Overall, not too hard, and there are great views at the overlook.

Lots of History fun to Explore. My wife and I were there on a Sunny Day a few days after a March Snow Storm. Every thing looked picturesque.

Great for trail running!l Loop is 4.5 miles. This is a gravel trail for the most part. Follow signs to Bluff Point to Sunset Rock to Mumford Cove. You will love the views too!

Fun short hike, great for families and young children, or anyone looking to get outside for some fresh air. To get the most out of the hike I would recommend doing both loops.

Fairly gradual hike up an wide, dirt road. We went on one of the first warm days of Spring, and the crowds were unbelievable. The tower at the top felt like a party, with probably 50 people crammed onto the top level. This would make a decent hike on a day with less people, but it wouldn’t be phenomenal.

Nice hike, didn’t take long to complete. Will definitely go back with the dog.

There’s literally no markers I thought I was going to die in the woods

I love how it connected to the Day Pond Trail!

Good for a quick weekday walk in the woods or easy hike if you are in the area. Beware of dog turds. Also, leaf blowers can be heard which kind of ruins the solitude. You know you’ve made it in America when you can pay people to use leaf blowers early in the morning on your lawn just to keep up appearances.

Easy trail with the dog. About 10 minutes in there was a bug attached to his face. Might’ve been a tick but we managed to get it off. One side is fairly muddy and wet but the other side is dry and has a nice clearing of the reservoir.

Easy Hike and beautiful views

Great day on the trail today. The waterfall was amazing. Definitely in our top 3 hikes in CT, so far!!!

it's a good trail and close to my house. the trail is easily navigated and well marked

Short and steep, lots of nice waterfalls and cascades, there are facilities and picnic tables around the bottom, as well as a place to swim/wade.

Enjoyable, I'll try it again in the summer for hopefully better scenery.

Perfect spot for a run!

Easy simple trail. There is two ways to go up, going to the right you will do loop, going to the left it will be in and out type of hike.
