excellent hike, easy.

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.

Great for a quick, pretty hike with picnic.

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!

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

trails hard to follow and VERY uphill. love it though super cool

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.

A favorite trail in SW Connecticut. Lots of climbing and descending on technical trail. Hard wood and hemlock groves. A steep brook with one significant waterfall and several minor. A great technical trail run, but keep your eyes on the trail or risk a hard fall. Roots, rocks, fun.

Loved it. Rain and all!

Short trail. Good for a quick jog as a treadmill substitution. Go after a heavy rain.

Excellent trail, very well maintained. I would say it’s on the low end of moderate difficulty. Definitely longer than 5.4 miles, think it was closer to 7.5 miles.

I live 5 minutes away and I absolutely love this place!! Many different options for a hike...trails link up with Michael Ciola Conservation Area as well. Well maintained trails..blazed really well and also numerous spots to sit and enjoy lunch. I will be back for sure!!

Difficult for us. A lot of unexpected climbing up the stone ledges. Like hiking on corduroy.

Great hike

Pretty area. A bit of a shorter hike but nice little falls

One of my favorite hiking spots if you just wanna get outdoors. Lots of friendly dogs out there. There are a few spots that might be moderate, but overall pretty easy. Bring a simple bug net for your face in the warmer months, just in case. I’ve been swarmed real bad by gnats & mosquitoes on early a.m. hikes.

Didn’t do the whole loop, just doing sections of Tunxis.

Had a great hike. Dog also liked it

Can't get to the trail head, all posted land.

Beautiful place !

I got to a little over a mile over steep rock formation then lost the trail. Going to go back there was 3 plus inches of snow it was beautiful.

Great place.

Not what I expected. Very fun!

Beautiful. We made a few short cuts, and went to the waterfalls from the parking lot at the end.
Really nice trail.

Cascades is the best!! The part past the lake has parking down a little hill and dogs can be off leash to play starting 100ft from the dirt lot. If you want a longer hike though start at the parking mentioned.

Nice trail. Says it's a loop. But when you get to the top the red trail markers stop. I followed the blue for a while but know that's part of the Quinnipiac trail. Down trail is not marked at all and is very steep. Good workout either way!

One of my faves :) it's an easy loop with some moderate difficulty along the way and beautiful scenery:)
