Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike explores the intriguing home and grounds of Gillette Castle, overlooking the Connecticut River. Here actor William Gillette, known for his characterization of Sherlock Holmes, built an imposing yet whimsical stone dwelling. Beyond the home, you can explore a trail network that includes the grade of a narrow-gauge train that once coursed through the woodsy property."
