You can take a leisurely walk around the grounds or take the yellow trail and wish you had just walked around the grounds. Either way you will enjoy the visit.

Though the hiking trails here have long been on my list of favorites, they are more so now that quite an effort to improve and maintain them has been so successful. The ponds are in wonderful shape and the trails are easy to follow. The blazes are clear and are spaced nicely. I attended a wedding in the Mansion many years ago. It was a lovely setting, and I especially enjoyed being able to be among the plants and flowers in the solarium.

Tarrywile has so much to offer! There are trails for all levels of hikers, several geocaches & letterboxes on the property too. It's a great place to bring a picnic or book, there's tables & benches located near the parking areas. The whole property is very picturesque, the gazebo & meditation garden past the Mansion are very peaceful. Hearthstone Castle is worth a visit to, I remember taking a tour of it when it was still open in the early 80s, it's amazing what a toll time has taken on the structure. During the warmer months there is a story walk in the children's garden.

Despite being in the middle of downtown Danbury, this island of the great outdoors really is a quick way to escape from hectic life. Decent trails.
