The big rock was pretty cool but the view wasn't all that. Very quick hike.

Spent Sunday afternoon at Hurd State Park. Beautiful little gem of a park located on east side of the CT River just off Rte 151. My sister and I hiked the red trail starting from the pavilion. There was plenty of parking and pit toilets throughout the park. The red trail started slightly off to left of pavilion and follows a wide path until it goes smaller crossing over a stone wall. There are stone walls through the whole park, something that I love about CT. Somehow we lost the red trail as it came out into the road and walked further to the river trail marking sign. We followed this wide path down to a grassy knoll on the riverbanks where people were fishing and picnicking. Along the wooded edge we picked up the red trail again and ascended up a steep hill until we met the yellow trail to the vistas overlooking the river. This is a great spot to rest and have a snack. Following the yellow trail will bring you back to main road just slightly west of the parking/pavilion road.
