Good hike- fairly active with sloping terrain and stony, rooted trail. Pretty lake views. Beautiful treed pathways

This is a little hidden gem. Very pretty anytime of year, very simple, but especially nice in the fall and winter. There is a nice hiking path around the water. Worth the time.

Very scenic park. Great walking trails. Great views. I believe if you want to go fishing there you need a special stamp from Meriden town hall (so look into that).

I am an avid hiker and this trail is one of my favorites! The views are stunning and the loop is an easy trail to follow. The steep part of the trail has been redone with switchbacks, which was helpful. I highly recommend this trail!

Guiffrida Park is definitely a wonderful place to visit. When a person arrives there, there is a huge reservoir, which looks beautiful while hiking up the mountain, that makes the park look gorgeous. Also the trails there are amazing, there is one trail that stays...More
