  • Great place to get away and enjoy nature. Roads could be repaired for walking, but like that inaccessible to cars. Also enjoyable for walking dogs and cross country skiing.  more »
  • This is a beautiful park! I went in winter and it was still so scenic. The trials are well marked and there are nice views!  more »
  • This is an easy park to walk. Paking at the start of the trails leads to nice views and interesting Connecticut woods.  more »
  • I hadn't really hiked before so this was my first time and it was an awesome experience. The trail was a great distance for anyone looking to start out and was long enough to be a challenge and get a great workout. I definitely recommend for anyone looking to enjoy nature while getting some cardio.
  • Have walked the paved road many times but just began exploring the hiking trails in the woods. Clearly marked and vary from easy to challenging (on short sections), a great place to exercise outdoors in the winter.
  • Great trail for every level. Took a nice leisure walk with my daughter, who’s 11
  • Go to place for hiking or walking. To the tower or just north on metacomet. Much less crowded than heublien tower trail
  • Love Penwood State Park. Love the slightly challenging tracks as much as the views overlooking Farmington valley.
