Trail to riverfront, good for lunch or afternoon hike. Audubon Center at trailhead. Trail from main road leads to the Connecticut River. Good lunchtime or after-work hike. Trail is through woods, light uphills/downhills, a few wood footbridges over streams, a couple community gardens. Some side-trails. Well maintained with mulch base; gravel for a brief stretch but still has a remote feel. Worth an unspoiled view of Connecticut River with beach (very mushy sand) along eastern shore. Picnic tables in clearing with river view. Toddlers can do it but may need to be carried for some of the slopes. Buggy around dusk.
