Machimoodus State Park overlooks the beautiful Salmon River in East Haddam, Connecticut. A network of three ponds is nestled near the entrance abutting fields mowed for the benefit of the summer wildflowers. Picnic tables are sprinkled throughout the area. Further into the 300 acre park, old roads and trails take the visitor to picturesque and grand overviews of both the Moodus River and Salmon River Cove.

Beautiful views, pretty easy trail.

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.
