Activities: Birding, Fishing, Hiking, Hunting
A very nice hike along the Scantic River. Can be done as an out and back along the river, which is a very easy hike. The loop has a steep ascent to get to the ridge above the river. There are a few side trails that cut down to the river about half way along the top of the ridge. You can follow the trail along the top of the ridge past the descent to the river to get some nice views of a local farm.
This is a nice small pond to kayak/canoe on. It seems to have a plant infestation, but as long as you're ok with that it's a fun place to paddle around and explore. I recommend putting in at the boat launch located at the intersection of School and Maple. Enjoy!
Really fun kayaking if you like to slowly meander up a narrow, winding river. Lots of wildlife and it seems pretty remote in places. It goes on for quite a ways so you can make a nice relaxing half day out of it. Good parking and easy put in by the pond.
