The "Perimeter Loop" is not really a single trail, and so therefore is not really well marked at some parts. I had my phone with the App, so I was able to stick fairly near the trail as its marked on AllTrails most of the time(with some off-trail hiking at points). I also came across two bobcats on the trail in the Ansonia Nature Center section at the far south of the loop, so I avoided that section and cut a new path to the rest of the loop. Doubling back and a few dead end trails later (to avoid the area with the bobcats) I was able to pick up the trail and continue on. There is also a local gun range nearby, making the sounds of gunfire an almost constant companion. Overall a good, pretty easy hike.

Nice and easy hike. The sounds of the nearby shooting range are a constant companion which I could do without though.
