Great hike with beautiful views! We plan on returning when the tower opens for the season. It was very peaceful and pretty with the snow but we would certainly love to see what else the park has to offer.

Very pretty place to visit near Avon, Simsbury, Bloomfield CT. The tower has a nice observation deck and small museum, park is very nice with few nice spots for picture perfect views of the Farmington Valley.

Nice little hike (pretty steep in some areas) up to the Hublein Tower. We visited on a beautiful Fall weekend, and the views were great. A bit crowded on the trail due to it being a holiday weekend. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear.

Great hike! Initial climb is a bit tough but even my little one can do it. Once to the top it is a fairly flat hike thru the woods to the tower. You can get up and down in about 2 hours or so. Parking...More
