Very very cool trail. Not the best views but there are some interesting structures and a story that goes along with this place.

One of the best trails in Connecticut. You can be here for hours and not see everything.

It was a good hike. I thought some of the trails weren't marked too well. There's a purple trail that doesn't exist on the map that was published in 2009. The lookout at the top of the Metocomet Trail (blue trail) was beautiful. The yellow trail had amazing lookouts as well. Went on a Sunday morning at around 9 a.m. in the fall - place started getting busier around 11.

It's such a beautiful trail, but BEWARE that unless you are a Trumbull resident with a parking pass, you can't park in the main lot. We didn't realize and got a $25.00 ticket :(

This hike was interesting and challenging. There was scrambling, easy walking, and tight areas to walk through. Although the trail info mentions dogs okay on leash, I wouldn't bring my dog on this one. A couple of areas, we were actually scrambling up steep ledge. I would rate this trail as moderate to difficult. It isn't for the beginners or those with claustrophobia. My grandson and I enjoyed the trail and will probably do it again in the spring.

lots of trails here to bike, hike, or horseback ride. They are a combo of woodsy walking trails and dirt roads. They get lots of use from many groups such as scouts, military groups, riders, walkers, bikers, etc. Maps available on the CT DEEP website.

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.
