Great trail walk with epic views! Dogs on leash welcomed!

Enjoyed crossing bridges. No bugs even tho hot and humid today. Went at 730-830 about. Plenty of little sheds to watch birds from. Plenty of benches. Be sure to go out to hayfield and do the other circle too. Beautiful would go again!

A Very pretty and calm place, but tall grass- to check out on the grassy side with plenty of birds! The stream was nice to sit and relax by. We checked out the trail across the street and not very well marked and very buggy. HOWEVER EVEN WITH TICK SPRAY MY DOG TOOK HOME A COLONY OF TICKS! I literally gave him a bath as soon as we got home and took over 50 off of him and 15 off of me! (went in May)

Great, quick, and somewhat vigorous hike! Beautiful view of town at the top. Would recommend!

Trails were confusing at parts. But We saw an eagle, so that made our day. Good hike, plenty of nature. Great for photographers!

Decent level trail but very buggy. Borders town dump not very rural... would not recommend

The blue trail loop was well marked-- long,busy and lots of tree roots and rocks beneath our feet. Saw a few people on their phones trip over the roots. Sadly, the waterfall was dry and dripped. Within 20 min we saw a couple snakes, heard and saw many birds (2 mating Osprey were a couple), as well as the pond at sunset, which was pretty. Toward the middle of our walk, it was pretty quiet and just ourselves, before more walkers passed us. Paths are narrow to keep SD.

Waterfalls were very pretty but big falls is off trail, so follow the sound to get there...

A quiet beautiful spot! We heard 3 owls, spotted 2! Near the entrance, there is a patch of tall grass and shrubs. Many bumble bees, dragonflies and butterflies... and gnats. We will definitely come back! Toward the end of our time there, more people showed up to swim. (over 12 folks)

Didn’t follow the trail as marked but still nice. Views are at the beginning.

The beginning of the trail is not marked well if you start alongside the river. We got lost off trail a few times, thank god for the app. We finally got collected 1 mile in and then it was marked well. Nice little waterfalls, views of route 8 and the valley.

Very good trail conditions except for the short passage on a service road which was a bit muddy and generally not as pretty. Lake in Bolton is good for a small picnic - nicer at the wider end.

Amazing trail, not well marked but follow the foot path and the map. A lot of poison ivy so be careful! Tons of wildlife! It was amazing! There is a marked “dog pond” it looked over grown and gross (with pollen and mud) but the dog LOVED it. Highly recommend.

One way out is crushed stone the other is lots of roots. We opted to go up to gravel road it was a nice breeze. Nice ruins nice falls nice trip!

Kick ass trail. Mosquitos aplenty. Some serious climbing. Not for the faint at heart.

Beautiful, quite serene trail, with varied options. Kid and pet friendly. They have beautiful gardens and flowers, but there wasn’t really much maintenance in the garden outside the greenhouse. Not sure if that was due to COVID. Charming little gem tucked away in Stamford.

Definitely more of a walking trail than a hiking trail. Had to follow all trails very closely. Falls don’t appear to be on this trail. We had to do a detour across train tracks to find them - but worth the walk. Not very scenic but good for families, dogs, walks, jogs, etc.

This park is one of my favorites. We went early this morning with the intention of hiking this trail, but part of it was closed off due to some work that was being done. So we did purple to orange to blue to orange to purple. It was beautiful in the morning. And we found about a thousand little orange newts, so my kids were psyched haha

The park is easy to find since the trail starts at the end right next to the skate park. I wasn't really digging the waterfall idea more like a little flowing stream if you ask me. the blue blazes are easy to follow but be warned after you follow the river and come out on the gravel sandy road watch the blue blaze where you turn up the hill since its hidden on the tree. yes i missed it and you can be circling that area for a while which is more like a dump. whats good is you got the over look view on the way to wolcott road and a cave as well as this big swamp and pond at the end so some nice scenic things. its not a long hike either so if you want more do the whole mattatuck trail it goes for miles

This is a great little trail! The mix of environments (wetland, meadow, and mountain), the tough little half-mile climb, the views at the top... who could ask for anything more.

Well maintained trail that has a range of plants and trees!
