Took my 8 month Viszla/Pit mix on 3.3. Finn had a great time. Nice size trails and peaceful. Going back to checkout other trails.

Nothing too challenging, but absolutely beautiful. Couldn't believe this place was so close to civilization!

Fun and easy...went on a weekday and it was still packed. Lots of intertwining trails...wish I had a map. Cool to be so close to Boston and still feel like you are out in the middle of nowhere.

There are several small loop trails that offer from a short 0.5 mile walk to about 9 miles. The historic farmland now going back to nature has a woodland filled with Beech and Holly trees along with hardwoods like maple and oak. Massive stonewalls and building foundations can be found. A 700' boardwalk and tree platform reached by two suspension bridges add to the highlight of the reserve.

Mount Frissell - Connecticut Highpoint

The trail head is not marked. I followed Brians track. The trail head is north of the Appalachian Trail head. You will pass the AT trail head when heading north and pass another trail head on the east side of the road. Go north and there will be one more trail head on the west with parking on the east and west sides of the road. Park there and the trail head is on the west. Beautiful trail! The view from the peak is non existent as stated previously, but the view just past the MA/CT boarder marker is amazing with the catskills in the back ground! I would highly recommend that trip for any one that is up to the climb
