Absolutely beautiful

Nice hike. No place to park and the entrance on the side of the road.

The trail is very undulating but for the most part very relaxing. Lots of foliage keeps you out of direct sun light.

Good variety of trails - well maintained

Nice, quiet and beautiful hike, other than one steep small hill I would label this blue loop as an easy hike. Extremely light foot traffic, very well marked trails, a couple fisherman on banks of beautiful reservoir which the trail does include an on top of view of, will definitely do again but again would say easy not moderate.

A wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Hikes can be as long or short as you like.

We walked, but we'll be back with bikes soon, and snowshoes later.

This is a very good trail. However due to the recent storms there is significant damage to the forest at certain sections of the trail. Tried hiking here on 6/2/18. Starting from the echo valley lot and going counterclockwise on the blue trail, About 2 miles in you encounter many downed trees which obscure the trail. This app was a huge help as we had to find our way around them. When we got to the Hanover St. lot we decided to just walk surface roads back to echo valley as we weren’t sure if the condition of the rest of the trail. I understand that the state is going to bring in some equipment to harvest the trees for timber. If you’re planning this hike be prepared to take detours, go off trail and climb over lots of downed trees.

Very easy, flat trail. Enjoyable for an easy and pretty walk.

2 pretty views. Did the full Meeker trail (yellow) loop rather than the out and back trail on this app. 4 miles total. Decent hike but wouldn't do it again.

Only two stars due to the current conditions. Trees down everywhere. I’m surprised it’s even open. That being said river portion of the hike was in decent shape. I’m sure it’s a great trail once it’s cleaned up.

Post storm. Needs large amount of maintenance. Hard to find trail in several spots. The map helped immensely. We had fun bushwhacking over the downed trees but were very tired at the end. Thank goodness for Holy Cow!!

Nice. easy side of moderate. would have been a little bored but we took the gold trail for a rockier path and better views. the old pavilion was really neat and enjoyed climbing on the jette at the beach. a little humid and 79 degress.

We did the red trail to green. We wear our kids in back packs and found it very doable- we did watch our steps carefully on parts of the red though! Great place we will be returning soon!

Nice and flat, really easy trail running that goes along a pretty reservoir for a good portion.

Very nice hike. Like a walk in an enchanted Forest. Just be careful. I went counter clockwise. If you go this way you come to the back of a trail sign mid way through the loop. At that point the markers were highly visible so I went straight only to notice a mile later I was off the loop. I doubled back and realized I should have gone left at the trail sign where the marker was less visible.

Nice trail for a walk in the woods. I wouldn’t call this a hiking trail because most of it is flat with a path large enough to drive a car.

Great view, great zen

Very pleasant, well maintained. Several nice brooks and water features. Relatively low wildlife activity.

Not much of a hike, more of a walking trail than anything. Took the blue and white trails. The white trail has you serpentine a lot. The pond is very pretty though, especially on a sunny day!

Good hike and beautiful view at the top. Today was a tad windy and cold, but worth it. Pups loved it also.
