Snow covered trail but nicely packed. Beautiful.

Loved this loop! Trail is very clearly marked.
Beautiful- Still snow on the ground, but packed down from hikers so slippery on climbing sections.
About .5 mile is on a neighborhood road before you head back into the woods.
Lots of streams for dogs to drink.

Some awesome views of lake.

Great for a quick, pretty hike with picnic.

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

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!

Best hike in CT that i've been on so far. just be careful with the doggos when you get to the top.

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!

Fun short hike, great for families and young children, or anyone looking to get outside for some fresh air. To get the most out of the hike I would recommend doing both loops.

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.

This trail needs an update. It is no longer a loop, & a quick hour hike turned into a 3 hour into sunset in high 30°end-to-end. I ended up getting a ride back to trail head from a local resident, who said he'd grown up hiking there, and confirmed it's no longer a loop.

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

Hiked the trail Sunday, 3/4/18 , with three others and enjoyed it very much. We followed the blue marked trail to Mount Lamentation and returned on the red 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

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

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

walk this trail often. love it.

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