Talcott Mountain

Simsbury, Connecticut

Talcott Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"This hike takes place at one of Connecticut’s most treasured state parks. You will follow a wide trail up to a 1930s-built castle-like observation tower, where views range in all four cardinal directions.

The hike then continues along a rocky ridge before turning back. Here you will pass a huge stone quarry, the ultimate reason for the park being saved, along with remaining infrastructure of the quarry as well as an old streamside milldam."
