My favorite section of this trail is Besek Mountain in Middlefield, CT. The views of Black Pond from the top are absolutely incredible. I could sit at the top of this peak for hours.
This hike is another favorite of mine. You start this hike below where there is a beautiful pond with fountains and plenty of ducks. You'll get the best views if you do the hike up to Castle Craig.
The tiring hike up to the peak is completely worth it for the stunning views of Bradley Hubbard Reservoir.
Hiking up the mountain offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape. The scenic hike has are various overlook spots that are great for snapping pictures.
There are various loops to do around the park as well as some out and back trails that take you down to the Connecticut River. If you're lucky, you'll see some bald eagles along the river on your hike!
The best times to go to Blackledge Falls are in the wet season when there's been rain or during the winter when the falls are a stunning frozen spectacle.
Highlights of this park include a stunning waterfall which can be viewed near the Spring St lot and the an overlook along the white trail which is about a 20 minute walk from either parking area.
