Good walk in the woods. Trails are well marked but not much in the way of views. This early in the Spring, I’d say the trails are in great shape.

For most of the year the trail is open only to pass holders or paying guests who are with pass holders. For me, this is Greenwich’s saving grace. I walk the trail almost every day and you can’t beat the sunset and sunrise views. Also a great view of Manhattan.

Trails are super leisurely so don’t expect a workout unless you are jogging. Also gets very crowded in the summer through late fall. But all year ‘round it is stunning.

To be fair, I was sort of all over the place within the park. I didn’t stick with one color and instead wove in and out depending on the terrain. It’s not a bad hike—lots of river crossings, some with only a log, and pretty rock formations—I just prefer hikes with more scenic overlooks. The best part of this trail for me was the rock scrambling and the walk around the small lake. It is scenic and probably really beautiful in the summer and fall.

Definitely a fun trail!. I don’t think the overall mileage listed is accurate. It claims to be 5 1/2 miles but we had it closer to 6 1/2. The views are spectacular definitely not for beginners as a couple people in our group didn’t seem to enjoy it as much as they should have.

Nice challenging run

I could only do about 1 mile but I loved every bit of it. Trail is definitely not for the ones with a stroller because it gets a bit rocky and uphill.

Very nice, well kept moderate trail with good views and wildlife to observe. Well marked. Enjoyed it!

We loved the trail, great for dogs. March is the best time to go, no bugs. I want to go back and explore some more.

Still some ice on trails closer to the water. Very well marked and interesting trail. Quartz mine was not something you see every day.

Trail has some very large rocks that have to be scaled. On the way back down it can be difficult especially with kids. Good hike for the Little’s and the dog. Has a decent view of Thomaston and if you are looking for the cave it may take some exploring. Have fun!

We parked at Pattagusett trail. White trail then left to blue wells trail. Simple hike. Steep start with steps. Manageable for my 5yo. Stepping stones are washed out (March 2018) needed to cross at road.

Spring is underway. You can see plants beginning to sprout, frogs and ducks in the ponds. What a beautiful spot.

highly recommended. great family hike to the great ledge.

Trail was a exactly what I was looking for, pretty easy to walk around with a few hills to get you out of breath. Trail was in good condition with lots of blazes to keep you on track. One could get by with sneakers on this dirt/rock trail but I always prefer/recommend hiking shoes. I enjoyed this loop so I decided to go around again and ventured onto some of the smaller connecting trails.
