Scenic af

Hiked about 4.5 miles of the trail in my neighborhood from chuck wagon lane to long ridge about 3 hrs easy to follow but lots of ticks

Nice place to hike. Lots of trails and different terrain.

Like the park. Trails well marked.

Multiple trails to cater to all levels. I'm a regular here.

A nice mix of terrain with multiple options. You'll encounter hayfields, woodland trails, significant rock outcroppings and boulders with a few steep climbs/descents depending on the route taken. I thoroughly enjoyed it on a spectacular September morning.

Trails can be confusing. Views blocked in summer but did take orange down to water to get closeup view of lake Decent

A nice juxtaposition between the rural and urban. Easy to access.

Nice views in the spring and autumn.

Nice spot to hike, with pretty views and a field for relaxing. Can get very busy. The park puts on events, too, and has a beautiful house you can rent for weddings, etc.

I couldn't find the back half of the trail. Although this was my first time using the app and I had not downloaded the trail prior to my run.

I ran the front loop three times which means I ran that monster of a hill three times. When that's all you do, it kicks your butt.

The trail was a bit crowded as clearly it's family friendly. The sight is great for taking in nature and a short hike.

Next time, I'm definitely downloading the trail first to take on the back half.

Beautiful land and varied terrain make this land a great place to hike.

This is a great area. I did a short hike as the wind was blowing and it was brutal cold but this looks like a pretty nice place to explore. The water is nice and there are some cool rock formations. Give it a try!

Really enjoyed the whole trail-well marked, challenging but many areas that were relaxing and easy!
There were a few areas of ice- but nothing insurmountable.

Nice loop with partial view of Candlewood Lake in Bear Mountain Reservation. Perfect for an afternoon stroll. Meadow has nice flowers and birding nests. Park has various trails from easy to moderate.

Well blazed and traveled trail system.

Decided to backpack the trail, and spend a night in between pine mountain and Wooster. Started from redding. Good easy park at both endpoints. Pretty well blazed. Couple good views. Pretty ponds. Pretty buggy in July. Would make for a good spring or fall hike!

It's amazing the places that are right there in your backyard. It was a relaxing walk. Enjoyed the ponds and the quietness of the park.

Started in Tarrywile Park, went along the western trail of Parks Pond. Took a little trail 1/2 way to the southern end of the Pond to go a little west to pickup the Ives. Which we followed up to the beacon on Thomas Mountain. Instead of going north towards Tarrywile Lake, we followed the trail down past two trashed 1980's cars (Chevy and Peugot) and then didn't know where to go. Went straight where the only markers were duct tape. Turned around and took the other choice which led us to the Old Post Road and onto Wooster Heights Rd in Danbury. About 3 hours.

One on my favorites. Great hike to the summit and great climb out!

We took the dog and went around the ponds and up to the peak at the far end of the park. Not much in the way of views, but there were two old, abandoned cars on the yellow trail that had been covered in graffiti and were an interesting surprise. The park was very popular with dog walkers (leash needed), but we found loads of ticks on the dog afterwards.

Pretty trails, the hardest climb was a good workout but the views at the top were limited. Very pleasant to walk around the pond

Beautiful scenery abounds on this trail. This is the perfect time of year to see the colors and feel the cool air of Autumn.

This place is awful all the way from Lowe's and over to the fork in the river by the Marriott and beyond. Garbage everywhere near the trail and in the water. It's blazed pretty well during the summer and fall and you get to see some awesome graffiti art underneath 84 but that's about it. Do not go during the winter or spring, trail is never blazed, not enough foot traffic to pack the snow down in winter and too muddy during spring. This place could be cool considering it's in the heart of Danbury but it's a borderline garbage dump. Go if you feel like picking up after people or want to see a three-eyed fish.
