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.

Some awesome views of lake.

Great for a quick, pretty hike with picnic.

Great trails. Good year round. Well blazed.

Hiked this trail yesterday for a late winter hike. Snow still on the ground but blue skies overhead. Started on the trailhead at cream pot rd and hiked up past pyramid rock on the mica ledges trail. Connected with the blue blazed Mattabesset and circled back. Extremely well marked. Looks like they’ve updated their markings. Some very nice views along the hike. Quiet and peaceful.

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

Beautiful walk with my dog!

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

A friend and I did this hike yesterday. It was a sunny day and there was a lot of snow still on the ground. The hike was lovely and definitely a workout going up and a little hairy going down. Best to hold onto some branches and trees or avoid slippery rock faces and take the deep snow way around. All in all a great 2 to 2 1/2 hour hike. if anyone happens to go on the trail and finds a gray hat with a pompon, please contact me st 203 592 8403. I believe I lost it on the trail and would love to get it back!

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!

Walked on a Sunday morning woth my boxer! Saw only a couple quiet people. Very well marked, there’s a river with mini waterfall to check out. Muddy in patches wear boots. Parking on east side of road across from trail entrance

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.

Really easy hike. Perfect for kids and pets. Definitely recommend.

This trail needs an update. It is no longer a loop, & a quick hour hike turned into a 3 hour into sunset in high 30°end-to-end. I ended up getting a ride back to trail head from a local resident, who said he'd grown up hiking there, and confirmed it's no longer a loop.

I love how it connected to the Day Pond Trail!

Hiked the trail Sunday, 3/4/18 , with three others and enjoyed it very much. We followed the blue marked trail to Mount Lamentation and returned on the red trail.

Nice winter hike! The trail can be a little muddy and slippery when snow covered. Beautiful waterfalls and some steep section and rewarded with amazing views.

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.
