“Fine State Park”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We live across from this park so know it intimately. Great for vigorous biking and walking. Nice pond that has stickleback nests in the spring. Edwardian view tower at the top - magnificent views.

“Easy hike. Great view.”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

This is one of the best views around, and the hike is only about a quarter mile long, with no steep incline. Highly suggested.

“A great hike for the family or by yourself”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Drive up the winding mountain road until it dead ends at the base of the "real" mountain and then start your hike. Trails are marked according to difficulty. Wear good hiking shoes--lots of climbing but it's worth it. A beautiful stone tower is at the top (recently hit by lightning and rebuilt to it's full former glory) with 360 degree views of Norfolk, CT, MA, Canaan Valley and NY State. Bring your camera.

“Tri-state views”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Haystack Mountain offers a lovely hike to the top, where you will find an old stone tower to climb. The reward is 360' panorama including CT, MA, and NY states.
