The hike to Chauncey Peak is short but very steep, the views on top are great.

Best hike in CT that i've been on so far. just be careful with the doggos when you get to the top.

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 little hike to the top, few curves while climbing are steep.. Colors NONE

Hiked on the blue and yellow trails yesterday. The yellow trail is very rocky while the blue trail is incredibly steep and very narrow on the inclines. Most of it is straight up. I had my 20 pound dog with me who hiked it just fine. There were lots of other dogs around as well. Be prepared for wildlife...snakes in the water and foxes on the trails. Beautiful place.

Nice hike. The part of the trail to Chauncey Peak is steep and rocky. The scenery is beautiful and well worth the hike to the peak. Seems to be well maintained.

I did the hike on a warmer December day. The hike starts out fine but it does get quite steep at one point. We made it to the top and beautiful views but ended up walking down the paved path on the way down.

Just did this on Sept 9th with ideal weather. Brought the whole fam - wife & 3 kids (9, 7, and 5). Not too tough for the 9 and 7 year olds. Great views at the top - and some decent slopes on the up and down. Not too hard or long but good challenge for the fam.

Nice and quick hike

no trail

Great views

Great morning run

Love it is so nice and relax

I love this hike for an after work hike. I (believe i) posted a route that uses blue trail, red, and back to blue that gets both Chauncey and Lamentation.


Pretty rocky. Nice views. On the upper end of moderate imo

Awesome trail !!

Nice hike once you cross the highway and get away from the sounds of the cars. Some steep rocky inclines but worth it for the views at the top. I plan on going back in the fall.
