Encampments remain from 1778 when the Patriot soldiers spent the winter here. The conditions they lived in are evident and harsh. Bronze statue of General Putnam on his horse created by Anna Hyatt Huntington is standing at the entrance to the park.. Visit the Information...More

My mother, sister, dog, and I went on a hike here. We were very impressed by the well groomed trails and will definitely go again! There are miles and miles of trails to explore with several lakes and ponds, any age or ability can enjoy!...More

Great for a walk, hike, kayak or trail run but really shines in the single track. Many trails of all levels. No freeride stuff but lots of rock gardens and some good flowey lines. Some good climbing as well.

at any given time you'll see horseback riders, backpackers, hikers, dogs, kayakers, and sketch artists here. It's a great place to visit, take a long walk, or just sit.

This park is for everyone! Families, couples, solo hikers, byciclers, dogs ponds and strollers! There are many different entrances and thus trails but they all can eventually lead towards water where you can fish or canoe or kayak. Great place to spend time :)

Nice green space, usually not crowded, as we all have big yards up here, anyway. Good hiking and cross country skiing. Nice pond, too, which people sometimes clear for skating, although I haven't noticed that in the last couple of years.

For almost 30 years, we have enjoyed Huntington Park. The walking trails are well maintained and marked. It is one of few places that horses are permitted, and the main trails for them are wide, flat with heavy duty bridges which safely hold their weight....More

This is the place to go to get away for awhile and commune with nature. The extensive trail system ensures that you don't have a deluge of people right on top of you. The trails around the lake are very scenic and the remains of...More

Wide open trails or smaller foot paths... Great scenery and the perfect place to forget about life for a while
