  • Just visited the reservation this past Saturday and the leaves were gorgeous. There are a number of parks and reservations in the Westchester/Fairfield County Area, but this one surpasses all of them....  more »
  • We did a 4 mile, 3 hour hike and only covered a small portion of the trails. We found the Leatherman's Cave which was disappointing as were the Magic Steps. The Overlook on the Leatherman Loop on the ...  more »
  • What a delight to do the Michigan Trail at this reservation - a 5+ mile natural trail with substantial shade from the casading canopy of forest trees. Bonus points for well marked trails! Portajohn in...  more »
  • Nice place to hike if walking in the forest does it for you. The trail maps are very good, all the trails I saw were well marked, and all the intersections are numbered both on the trail and on the map, so finding your way is a snap. I visited the Indian Rock Shelter, which was nice, and the old fire tower at the peak. The fire tower is gone so don't expect a panorama view there. I also camped here once which was a good experience overall.
  • Beautiful park with short hiking trails suitable for our 4-year old. The tent sites were spacious and far apart from each other. One drawback was we didn't have phone service which made it difficult for us to find a grocery store to buy food and firewood... will plan appropriately next time.
  • A fine place for a family day hike offering many trails if easy to moderate difficulty, and fine views,.The extensive, trail network is exceptionally well-marked, in fact it might well be the best mapped and blazed trail network I've ever used. That makes it a snap to change your plans, to lengthen a hike if you have the whim, or to cut your walk short if you need to. Kudos to the folks who mapped and marked the trails.
  • Large open park area with camp grounds. Reservations required for camping. Walking trails and open fields. Pet friendly.
  • Nice little trails calm place nice when you want to get out the city
