Easy walk with 9yr old daughter. Paved loop path. Plenty of shade.

A quintessential CT country walk. I’m so lucky to have Huntington State Park close by. It’s beautiful any time of the year.

Trail is not well indicated

I stayed to the east of Putnam Park Pond, which offered gorgeous views of the water and a paved trail (former road) for a stroll. This side has multiple picnic areas and swing sets for the kids.

The first part of Falls Trail that goes beside the stream is very rocky, wet and slippery, with moss covered stones on a fairly steep slope down to the stream. Once past the falls, the trail becomes easier. I continued on to Hardwood Trail, which was wet in several places and hard to follow. The GPS tracker on the app really helped to keep me going in the right direction. All in all, a moderately difficult hike that was a good morning’s activity.

Excellent Place to Run! It’s my go to every morning. There are so many varieties of trails at this park it’s amazing. Depending on my mood I can so 3- 8 miles and elevations can be very challenging depending on which trail you take. There’s also the possibility of getting lost but just follow the color your sticking with or always have you mike tracker on with a map and you’ll know which way to go back in no time. The perk to this park are the amazing views within each trail. It’s definitely something that makes you want to run even more and lifts the spirit.

Nice quiet trail, the trail and white blazes weren’t the easiest to follow at times but it wasn’t bad. Neat little falls and water along the way but the trail tightens up and gets rocky at that point. All in all worth the hike.

Not rigorous, but beautiful, and a great place to decompress

Love this place; some steep parts but a great hike.

Meadow with flowers followed by the quaint falls makes a nice little hike. Beautiful July morning to be outside.

Nice loop/ walk.

Enjoyed this nice little hike...great place for an avid birder like myself. Loved the wildflower meadow..it was teeming with butterflies. Falls were running well after a night of thunderstorms.

One of my favorite local trails during off peek months. There is a dog park, across the path — so be aware there are a lot of roaming dogs. You can also camp here. Will be giving this a try this summer. Just for the fact it’s local — and who doesn’t want to sleep under the stars, roast marshmallows and have access to the lake all to your self for a night. 來

The portion next to the river is overgrown, lots of rocks and roots. You are def scrambling a bit. Very narrow at points so you are wading through ferns and bushes and there’s a lot of poison ivy. That being said we will likely return. Just be aware of conditions.

Good variety of trails - well maintained

Lots of interesting history, worth seeing at least once. Definitely great for families.

A little buggy, but a beautiful waterfall.

Great loop with many options. I wish there were posted trail maps that showed all of the smaller trails.

You do not have to be a Redding resident, I go here all the time and I live in Bethel. It's super pretty and I always see cute ducks and great fungi.

first and formost, NEED TO BE A REDDING RESIDENT!! This should have been in the information part you read. Drove 40 min to check this place out to only find out that information. There is a pond, wouldnt really call it a lake. Lots of bugs in area. And tons of people walkjng their dogs off leash even though its posted about 10 times that they must be on a leash. So, nice short walk, but dont bother if you don't live there.

Good for dogs, more trails than shown on map, moderate climb, a little tougher if you go along the falls.

Not much of a hike, more of a walking trail than anything. Took the blue and white trails. The white trail has you serpentine a lot. The pond is very pretty though, especially on a sunny day!

Easy hike around the pond. Moderate one to the top of the mountain but the view is worth it. Lot of people dogs.

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.

Worth every step.

The Falls Trail is more than moderate, especially if you’re walking with children. Erosion has brought the trail very close to the river over unsteady rocks and exposed tree roots.

Huntington offers a wide range of trails from easy to difficult. Only setback is that it is too popular .

love this place! so many trails to explore, was lost for a bit so deff follow a map because you dont see a lot of people once your out in the trails.

Easy walking trails with great historical markers around the loop.

Note: the color of the trail when you start at the south lot (the one with the bear and wolf sculptures) is actually the blue trail. Allltrails mistakenly notes if as the white trail.
