Gillette Castle Professional Review and Guide

"This hike climbs a mountain overlooking the Farmington River valley and the site of a fascinating home with a 165-foot observation tower. The walk to the tower is short but steep in places. However, the views from atop Talcott Mountain and the mountaintop castle make the hike worth it. Picnicking is also available at Talcott Mountain State Park."
