This is a moderate loop trail to view of yellow trail in Talcott Mountain State Park.

This trail goes by Heublein Tower and Speer Preserve plaque.

Fantastic views across western CT to NY State and Massachusetts from the ridge near Heublein Tower.

Getting Started

Parking is in a well signed and well marked paved lot that is adjacent to the trailhead.

Taking Children

There is nothing on this trail that young children cannot handle, though the entire route is rather long, so endurance is needed. The uphills are gentle and the section around the reservoir are flat.
