The Awesome Hike In Connecticut That Will Take You Straight To An Abandoned Castle

Danbury’s Tarrywile Park encompasses 722 acres and includes just over 21 miles of trails. The park features a wide array of landscaping and terrain, including a children’s garden, two ponds, and an old ski slope. Of course, there’s one sight that stands out from the rest: the once-grand castle built as a glamorous summer home in 1897.
