    The hike from the park to 'Castle Craig' is very long, but one can also take their car. The views on 'Castle Craig' are beautiful, and show views of 'Hartford CT' and some of MA.
    The park itself is very family friendly there are barbecue areas, lots of pretty ponds, a music hall. If you have kids their are also dinosaur foot prints.

    The pond is beautiful but kind of crowded... Very easy hike though.

    We had a lot of fun on this hike. The climb up was fun because you feel like you are scambling/climbing up rocks. One correction on the guide's directions....it is really a left onto Lewis Ave coming off the 691 west bound exit.

    The views were great, the trail was pretty icy and treacherous though....Ice stays on the low-lying trails for some time after it has melted elsewhere.

    Next time I'm bringing my climbing gear because there's a lot of great rock there!

    This is a great place to hike as long as you begin at the base of the reservoire. It has a remote mountainous feel with immense rocky walls and deep gorges on the way to the "castle". Follow the blue-blazed trail.

    Great trail. A must for spring account of all the Laurel. Best trail blazes I've seen on any of the blue blazed trails.
