Looped trail along CT river.
It was a good hike. The first half was pretty flat the second half had some very steep parts.
I did the Vista loop on a June morning. I found much serenity. Well maintained. Diverse scenery for a park of its size. Meadows at one end and ledge with overlooks at the other. Glimpses of Salmon Cove and the East Haddam bridge.
