Nice little walk around the pond. Not too strenuous.

I love this trail! It feels like a moderate hike to me with outstanding views of the lake. It's well marked and there are a number of options to take. Park in the boat launch area if you don't want to pay.

Like the park. Trails well marked.

Great walk - we will go back

Nice loop. We did it counterclockwise. There are many bridges as we followed a stream. The trail was wet with some muddy sections. The are many rocks and roots. Good footwear is advised.

Signage at the North Stonington Transfer station still indicates the trail between Wintechog Rd and Rt 2 is still closed. Attempted anyways however had to quickly turn back since all trees with the blue blaze are removed and no sign of the trail exists. Instead parked at Ryder Rd and did the portion to Wyassup Lake and back. Trail is starting to become overgrown and the blue blazes are faded and hard to see.

Simple,enjoyable loop by the sound. Great sites,clean, & an outdoor Fitness center that looks new for a bonus workout!

Really nice park, expect it to be very busy on nice weather days and long weekends in the summer months

WMF is a very fun place with lots of variety, and I do a lot of trail running there. As far as mtn biking it is boring, but for a beginner it’s excellent. If you are looking for something remotely challenging WMF is not the place!

Most of the trails are carriage roads that you can drive a car on. There are some good inclines to work on your climbing skills, but that’s about it. There are no technical downhills or much of anything challenging. Plus, many of the trails, unless you know the less populated ones, can be very crowded on weekends. To that, many of the dog owners are very disrespectful and don’t abide by the leash laws (for the record, I am a dog owner!). When one points out that they are breaking the rules most get their hackles up and underwear in a bunch.

If you want a challenge head over to the Mattituck Trail by the Thomaston Dam. It’s quiet, unpopulated, a very challenging!

Did the mid section from Ryder road to Legend Wood Road junction, 4.6 miles. Very scenic. The section south of Wtassup Lake had numerous trees down over the trail making it hard to follow in places. Just north of the Lake was recently cleared and had some great vistas and bluffs.

Beautiful falls. Perfect for a stroll with the family to just sit and relax.

very well marked. this is my goto trail.

Hiked on 11/4/17. Beautiful Fall day. Parked at the boat ramp and headed north along the east side of the lake and completed the entire loop which was 7.8 miles on my tracker. Some really nice sections. Not much elevation change. Loved the ridge on the northeast section of the lake. Nice valley/gully type section with standing water and willows in the northwest section while I was heading backed south. There was a short road section at the north end of the lake to cut across before heading back south. Some great river views. Saw a few hunters and heard many shots. The disc golf course near the boat ramp section looked cool. Worth the 1 hour and 15 min drive!

Great trail! It marked well past the cliff, but very nice otherwise.

Nice little loop trails, well marked, great little patch of woods and nature for where it is.
Never done the loop all the way around, but both sides of the lake offer various trails from single wide paths to old roads.

This is a nice hike, one of the best in the area.

Beautiful trail... scenic

Not much elevation gain but don’t be fooled. This trail is very rugged in parts. The western side is more interesting and has a number of campgrounds you can explore. At the north end and on the east side you can hear the traffic from 84.

Short trails fun run nicely maintained
