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.

Beautiful walk with my dog!

Walked it today.Kind of muddy but not difficult .Took about an hour .Part of the walk is on the road along the Farmington river .Coming out to the road on the west side of the loop was clearly marked with an orange arrow sign indicating to turn left and walk the road but was not marked at all at the re entry point just before the overpass where the trail will climb steeply .You need to pay attention to see it.

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!

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

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

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.

poorly rated. the purple trail is not easy. very narrow and gun shots coming from I don't know where!

love it except for the tick. just left the forest and immediately took 3 ticks off the dogs

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

Perfect spot for a run!

Easy to follow trail. Mostly walking with some slight hills.

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.

Beautiful walk, some gentle hills. Easy and quick with some pretty water scenery.

Loved it. Rain and all!

Not a difficult hike by any stretch, however the outer loop hugs the river for quite some time, making it a lovely hike for water lovers. We went when the ground was still quite thick with snow, but based on the limited elevation we didn’t struggle with ice/slipping. Will definitely do it again and perfect for those that are trying to get their kids into hiking.

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.

Path was rocky and easy to turn an ankle on but beautiful view at the midway loop. Definitely would run here again!

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!

Easy hike, beautiful views, lots of people but not too crowded

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.

Had a great hike. Dog also liked it

great for the winter a valley turned completely into ice

It is a very cold winter day, I will be returning in warmer weather . There was a lot of ice today and the trails weren’t marked that well, went off the trail a bit. Didn’t get too far into the trail but the views we did get to see were nice .

Beautiful place !

Great place.
