I love running at East Rock. The trails are easy on my knees and sometimes I run on the access road because it isn't as steep going up.

My first time there today and I really liked it. Steep on the way up with no chance of riding my mountain bike. But the ride down was great!! Nice view of hartford too. Definitely coming back.

Pretty steep at the beginning but it levels out. Nicely kept trail, easy to follow. There are a couple of lookouts, but they can be hard to see when the trees have full leaves (probably better in the fall). I will definitely go again.

It is a nice hike to the top, we followed the red trail and came around the face of the hill where they sometimes mountain climb. This was my 4th trip there. Both ways are a little butt kicker if you aren't used to uphill, but if you pace yourself it's fine. Lots of wash out areas on the lower trail going up. We love the view and watching the tons of turkey vultures that come check us out.
This trip on the way down the trail (the steeper of the two) we encountered a snake and it wasn't ordinary
