Heublein Tower

Embark On A Brisk Hike To The Heublein Tower

The deep freeze hasn't set in just yet, so take to the trails while the weather holds. Talcott Mountain State Park, on the Bloomfield-Simsbury line, is one of the few parks open year round.  Visitors can embark on a brisk 1.25 mile hike to the beautiful Heublein Tower which is suitable for most beginners and children, older than 6 years old.  Watch DayTrippers to see gorgeous views and learn about recent renovations to the historic tower. You can also visit the park's website.
