Lovely place for light hiking through unspoiled, exceptionally pretty terrain of CT. Seeing the old buildings and the landscape brings to life what inspired so many great painters to do their work here.

On the way back from Essex, Connecticut, we decided to stop by Weir Farm - part of our thinking, "Oh, they have a stamp, let's see what they're all about." Even if you have little interest in art, and can't tell an impressionist from Dali,...More

Most of the trails are very easy walking, though not paved. Mostly level and there are several walking "hikes" from which to choose.
