Tarrywile Park is a gorgeous, 722-acre park in Danbury, CT that is a popular spot for hiking, picnics, bird watching, and camping. I visited for the first time on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with the Western CT Outdoor Adventures meetup group and had a fantastic time with new friends, fresh air, and my newly purchased microspikes for winter hiking.

When to Go: The park is open year-round for independent or scheduled, guided hikes with park staff. There are also seasonal events throughout the year such as hayrides, stargazing, and yoga. See a full schedule of events at the Tarrywile Park & Mansion website.

How to Get There:  The entrance to Tarrywile is located at 70 Southern Blvd. in Danbury, CT and is easily accessible off of Route 7.
