The Sky’s the Limit 2017 Hiking Challenge #10
Gillette Castle State Park, East Haddam & Lyme
April 8, 2017
Lazy/tired/illiterate readers, you’re going to like this page. I don’t really plan on writing too much at all.
Me? Not write way too much?
So really, there’s nothing much more to write! But I did take a billion pictures. One could ask why I felt it necessary to drag my boys back to the park to hike the same hike again. One would be silly to ask. In my book, that’s called cheating and we don’t cheat hiking challenges. Ever.

Built between 1914-1919 by actor William Gillette, famous for his role as detective Sherlock Holmes, the “castle” is a whimsical building with a tower and a view of the Connecticut River. On the grounds of the property were a scale railroad, a man-made tunnel, and a ferry landing. Today, visitors can view the historic home, hike the old railroad path, or picnic on the expansive grounds.
This was also our last TSTL Challenge hike prior to a long layoff before nabbing the final four. Enjoy!
