The Sky’s the Limit 2015 Hiking Challenge #1
Talcott Mountain State Park, Heublein Tower
May 2, 2015
[This page is part of my ongoing series, “Hikes with my Boys.” The full list of those hikes can be found here.]
Here we go! I’m not sure I can complete this challenge with my sons, but I think I’m going to try. We started off with one of the more difficult climbs, so maybe that will motivate them. I told them that they’d get medallions if they do the whole thing, but that didn’t really get them too jazzed. Since I’ve been to all of these challenge places before, these TSTL pages will mostly be just photos.

The Tower Path is 1.3 miles or so up… the first half mile is pretty steep in places.
There are nice benches along the way up. The boys enjoyed each one.

Another bench, this time with snacks.

I like this picture
This one’s pretty good too
