I've lived close to this place for a very long time and didn't even know it existed until I found it on TripAdvisor! Wonderful place to bring kids, take photos, or take a hike. Cut your own flowers in the fall, see the animals. Wonderfully serene place. I keep coming back now!

I walk up Long Hill often as I live around the corner from it. It is peaceful and lovely. It's not a "hike". It's a meander through gardens though there are a few short woodsy trails. This walk is for garden admirers. There is a marvelous giant beech tree. Lots of the plants are marked for your learning pleasure. There are several little ponds with goldfish and frogs. You may see deer, fox, turkey, hawks, and vultures. I just love it up there.
There are no facilities.
You can walk the grounds in under an hour.

Nice walk around a lovely home and gardens. Worth an hour of your time. Must be a real treasure for the locals.

Georgeous gardens. There is almost always something in bloom. There is a children's garden where they can dig, water, play and have fun safely. They have chickens. There are Guinea fowl and peacocks wandering free.The walking trails which are well marked but you do need to protect yourself from ticks. Parking on property. Chairs and benches are positioned around the property that you can sit- enjoy a picnic, read a book or look at the beautiful gardens.
Pick you own flowers available some days during the week. Trustees of the Reservation also run a CSA farm there. They do also hold some classes during the year generally something pertaining to gardening. The property is dog friendly.

I visited Long Hill the day before the Daffodil Festival. It was quiet in the morning, and I had a lovely stroll. I appreciated that many of the flowers, trees and shrubs were labeled:)!

If you're in the area, I would make a point to put aside an hour for a short hike and a quiet respite.
