Once a private vacation spot for women during the turn of the century from New York City...now a preservation... CT owned.   One serious playground.  An old train tressel used to run through, which was how the girls got to the Rossiter's estate.   If you follow the bridal path down Tunnel Rd. you can find the old tunnel.  Very cool.  If you follow the West side of the Shepaug, you will find more difficult terrain and more trails to follow.  On the same side, you will eventually end up at the Hauser Footbridge.  Follow the yellow trailblazers up to the summit,  Watch out though, there are many side trails that lead up to the top, make sure you are on the right one back down.  Enjoy, just as beautiful in the Winter,
East side- very easy......  West side- more difficult.
