For a small dog he has some serious muscle. He made it all the way to the top of the Heublein Tower in Talcott Mountain State Park. This has been one of our favorite places to hike from growing up till now. The park educates the visiting public about the natural beauty of Connecticut as well as the state’s rich history. An architectural landmark since 1914, the Tower provides a unique destination for recreational opportunities, and a 360 degree view into Connecticut’s past, its present, and the future.
