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.

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!

Lots of History fun to Explore. My wife and I were there on a Sunny Day a few days after a March Snow Storm. Every thing looked picturesque.

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!

My favorite trail, I’ve seen maybe three people ever in the dozens of times I’ve been hiking here. Trail is easy to follow, brings you through streams and different terrain. Gated off in the winter.

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

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.

Nice hike, didn’t take long to complete. Will definitely go back with the dog.

I went a couple days after a significant rain event, and the trail wasn't that fun. it was basically walking uphill in a swampy stream. There are small rocks throughout the trail that make it very easy to twist an ankle. Definitely recommend proper foot wear.

The tower at the top is very nice, but I probably wouldn't do this particular hike again.

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!

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.

Easy Hike and beautiful views

Great day on the trail today. The waterfall was amazing. Definitely in our top 3 hikes in CT, so far!!!

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

Short and steep, lots of nice waterfalls and cascades, there are facilities and picnic tables around the bottom, as well as a place to swim/wade.

Enjoyable, I'll try it again in the summer for hopefully better scenery.

Perfect spot for a run!

Easy simple trail. There is two ways to go up, going to the right you will do loop, going to the left it will be in and out type of hike.
