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.

Great trails. Good year round. Well blazed.

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.

There’s literally no markers I thought I was going to die in the woods

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.

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.

it's a good trail and close to my house. the trail is easily navigated and well marked

I think some of these reviewers are talking about Ross Pond not Ross Marsh which are very different. Ross Marsh has little parking and a very short trail.

greet hike red/blue trails are very well marked, the blue trail isn't marked as well but still easy enough to follow. I was pleasantly surprised how clean the peaks were we saw very little trash up there. We took a couple long breaks to enjoy the views and finished the loop in less than 4 hours.

nice hike with amazing views once you reach the overlooks, too bad people litter the peaks with beer cans and glass. trail keeps going if you want to add some distance. oh and watch out for the attack cardinal at the parking area.

trails not marked well

Loved it. Wetlands so probably best to go in the fall or early spring when bugs aren’t an issue, but nice easy going and beautiful views.

Excellent trail, very well maintained. I would say it’s on the low end of moderate difficulty. Definitely longer than 5.4 miles, think it was closer to 7.5 miles.

Enjoyable. Nice view of Quassy Lake off White trail.

Great hike, easy

Lovely hike, although more challenging than I expected. About 3 miles in I saw a sign saying the trail is closed November to March. Whoops! Posting that sign at the trail head would’ve been nice!

very well marked, recommend boots because it can be very muddy. Great for dogs!

Difficult for us. A lot of unexpected climbing up the stone ledges. Like hiking on corduroy.

I’ve hiked here with dogs twice now and found it to have well-marked, nice trails. The dogs loved it and I can see how it’d be a nice spot to go to in the warmer months.

I ride my bike here all the time! Great rail path for biking, running, snowshoeing, and strollin’. Great scenery all around you, and cool off-shoots into the Valley Falls Park trails. It can be high traffic around the parking lot areas, but there’s nice quiet stretches in between.

Was there in February with snow on the ground. There are a number of trail intersections, green and orange markings. I shortened the loop by taking one of these. I wish All Trails had these trails marked on their topo map. I could find no park maps anywhere. I relied on the GPS. Wonderful hike nevertheless. Only hiked 3 miles.

Didn’t do the whole loop, just doing sections of Tunxis.

Nice easy trail for my 2-year-old and 4-year-old.
