Beautiful!!!

I think you have the wrong trail in the map. Millington trail is the red blazes. I know this, because I passed the green trail twice like the devil’s hopyard map says. I think it might be the green trail or blue. The trail listed which is green is the woodcutters trail and the blue it’s just blue. It’s easy to see when you look at the devil’s hopyard map they provide. Great trail I just wanted to bring attention to this and make it so others weren’t as confused as I was. It says that it is connected to the orange trail, but it goes out to the left of the map out of any crossing. Or maybe it’s labeled wrong as the upper loop of the orange trail where you go down a bit to the end of the second loop go back up and skip devil’s oven. Just fallow the red blazes after the waterfall.

Great water falls.

Easy trail until you hike up to devils oven. Which has a big incline. Brought a dog and the dog could keep up.

Second time going here. Absolutely my favorite. It's a work out climbing up the steep inclines. We
saw tons of red spotted purple butterflies and some turkey! my Wife almost stepped on a garden snake. lol

good trail took dogs had a nice time. not easy, but not too hard either.

much easier than moderate. easy plus, maybe.

The directions to the trail didn't bring us to the trail head. We pulled into the picnic area and went to the end. Go over the bridge and stay straight. As you ascend the mountain you will see the red markings. Trail was a bit muddy

Great spot & view. Kids love it. Places to sit on the rocks both at the bottom and the top of the falls. Trails and steps around are easy access. One our favorite places to go

This trail was more challenging than I expected! Lots of climbing up hills. There was some bad parts of the trail where you are unstable on the side of the hill and other parts you are just climbing rocks. I would classify it as a more difficult hike, but doable!!

This is an easy dog friendly and family friendly hike. It's a short 2.1 mile hike that is so green and lush in May that it makes one think that they are in Ireland. The parking at the trail head is very limited. We found room for 1 car only!! See included Photos. The plaque on the huge boulder near the end of the hike was a nice touch.

Beautiful trail. Thank you to the volunteers who keep it so nice!

this is my all time favorite place to go for a hike. LOVE it. but c'mon people... pick up your dog poop bags. Why do you even bag it if your just gonna leave it on the ground?

Moderate trail, great hike to the vista! One of the few Connecticut’s gem.

Definitely some challenging incline areas for true novices. We did the loop clockwise & towards the end, there were some areas not clearly marked due to trees falling, but that was a challenge my kids enjoyed! Also some boggy/wet areas but those will dry out in due time.

Go after a decent rain to see the Falls at their best. Really beautiful surrounding area

Beautiful trail series with waterfall, bridges, and skyline views. Took a few questionable turns but made it back to original trail. 4.2 miles overall with extra turns. Trails need some updating and clearing for the warm weather, but otherwise this is an absolute must!

Awesome hike, great all day adventure. Steep hills reaching the halfway mark and then pretty steady easy incline all the way to the end

Nice trail with some moderate challenges, especially along the river bank. Great vista view on clear days. Note: For best route following, do NOT use the park's orange blazes as they only cover the main route - not the more interesting hike.

Beautiful. We made a few short cuts, and went to the waterfalls from the parking lot at the end.
Really nice trail.

Nice family hike with family and dog. Waterfall was the best park. Busy, popular spot. Nice for picnics too.

Perfect hiking weather the day we chose to hike this well marked trail. Challenging yet fun trail. Was surprised that we did not see another hiker the entire trek. Well worth checking the trail system out.

The trail wasn't well marked, but it was beautiful in the snow.

Ideal for a short hike. The trails are not marked too clearly at times but lots of foliage and great views.

This place is gorgeous! I loved it all. Trails well marked, amazing waterfall! Highly recommend!

We picked a perfect day to hike this trail. The trail is well marked but you need to pay attention due to several intersecting trails. We did the trail in 4 hours and 15 minutes.We did not see another soul during the trip,

Absolutely lovely

Very busy

The orange trail is good for hiking.. specially the steep climbing of devils oven ..
