“800+ acres of walking trails in the middle of Danbury”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

This is a beautiful park in the grounds of an old estate. The trails run through fields and woods and around two lakes. You can run your dogs off the leash and enjoy a picnic in shady spots.

“Wear your hiking boots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

There are over 15 trails with varied difficulties for everyone. Some are guided and others are not. You can hike for an hour or two or the entire day. The area is very pretty as well with a mansion on the grounds.

“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Some really fine restorative work has been done here, and I am looking forward to visiting here again in the late spring, when all their gardens are in bloom and the mansion is open. A really beautiful setting.
