Case Mountain from South Main St. Manchester

     The summit of Case Mountain (744 ft.) offers an excellent view of Hartford, the capital of Connecticut.  The summit area is flat and spacious, an excellent place to admire the view and enjoy a snack.  The town of Manchester's South Main Street and, farther in the distance, Buckland Hills Mall (which perhaps you don't want to see) are also visible.  Case Mountain is well worth visiting because its network of trails is easy to hike, run, or bike and well maintained.  It is an excellent mountain for a family hike with the kids and dog.  Trails connect Case Mountain with Gay City State Park in Hebron.  Also, the 29-mile, blue-blazed Shenipsit Trail crosses Case Mountain on its way from East Hampton, CT to the Massachusetts border.  A waterfall adjacent to the trailhead parking lot on Spring Street offers a splash of cool water on the face as well as scenic photos.  For a relaxing 2.8 mile loop hike on Case Mountain, click on the Preplanned Hikes link to the left.
