Barn Island Wildlife Management Area Trail

Fun trails. Very scenic. I read others saying it wasn't well marked but I thought it looked pretty obvious which way to go as it was clearly blazed about 6 feet wide. I ride my horse while my husband bikes and this trail was great for that. Small hills and some rockiness, but not extreme by any means. The mixture of marsh and firestland was unique and very beutiful on a sunny summer day.

I enjoyed the short moderate hike. It was only about 2.5 miles. Great views.

You can do this one of two ways: 1. Go in through the "front door," as I did last week, starting at the Center, or 2. Go in through the "back door," that is, parking at the Air Line Trail Access point on Railroad Street in Pomfret, and picking up the northern trails from there, which is what I did today. Whichever way you choose, you are guaranteed a lot of variety: woods, fields, farmland, and streams. The trails are gentle with no serious uphills.

Had the whole trail to myself on a Wednesday in July. Very well marked and maintained. Beautiful views to Hartford and of the lovely lake below. I'm a flatlander and it was some work getting to the top but not steep for very long. Great short hike easily accessible from Hartford.

Take the trail straight up from where you are told to park for the Indian Caves in Barkhampstead.

First time hike and definitely a challenge. Used the park map on my smartphone and trekked through 6+ mile of well groomed trails and a few manmade ones. The hike is full of good elevations with some excellent scenic landings. If you're up for a 2+ hour hike I definitely recommend visiting this forest.

I am new to hiking and this was one of my first ever hikes that I did by myself- and I am so glad I found it! This is a relatively easy loop, well marked with great side trails that then go right back to the main loop. Some of the side trails I did included falls, a beautiful beaver pond overview (complete with white and pink water lily's), a small tower and others!

Without a doubt recommend this trail!

My favorite trail...I like biking from Manchester to Bolton and back (about 13 miles). One of these days, I'll tackle biking all the way to Willimantic. The trail (from west to east) is a slow gradual uphill, which makes turning around and riding the downhill all the way home pure pleasure. Mostly dirt trails (some small gravel), all well maintained. Even a set of port a potties along the way. Highly recommended by this novice cyclist!

Nice and easy 4 mile hike. Went there with my 10 year old daughter and she enjoyed it. Good for cycling, fishing and horse riding.
