Enjoy your time down here amongst the nature, trees and lake. There are usually not that many people there.

We walked on the trails that lead to the two vistas. The signs in the lot are not great. Moreover, there were no maps in the box. The trail is a little bumpy with rocks and tree roots. Hiking shoes are best as some of the leaves cover the trail so there is a tendency to trip or slip. The... More

I love it. I is very peaceful. I met few people as it was a weekend. Its a perfect getaway if u like trailing. The trails are not for families with very small children. But yes, couples of all age, teenagers and family with grown up children can come and enjoy few hours with nature. It is important to visit... More

My wife and I took a ride and really enjoyed the walk. We will be back for sure to explore some of the other trails. Fair number of cars in the lot but saw nobody on the trails. Very peaceful and very beautiful. The only negative was the bugs....our own fault for not wearing spray but about half way through... More

This is a gem of a preserve with great marked trails and surprises around every bend. Took my 12 and 15 year old grandchildren on this hike. It is a delight to introduce young people to the world outside of their computers and i phones. They were reluctant to go and then reluctant to end the hike.

I'm not a big hiker but I enjoy the occasional hike. I'm not very directionally-saavy and tend to get lost on trails even with a map. That being said, Devil's Den was a great place for a casual hike, the trails are clearly marked and each junction point is easily identified and correlated to the map. It was a very... More

I grew up and lived in Weston for 25 years and frequently spent time at this pond. In the Winter we would ice skate on it and in the summer we would go to walk around on the trails and enjoy the wildlife and the coolness from the trees. If your visiting Weston, CT it is a nice place to... More

A very neat experience. Went here for my friends birthday. If you own a wet suit bring it! Otherwise you will have to rent one because the water is cold!!! Don't plan to spend an entire day there because it's not very big and you get cold quickly.
