river

Activities: Birding, Fishing, Hiking, Hunting

Pretty, interesting history of the land usage, river is great to see & hear.

very easy trails, nothing marked very well but whatever trail you follow in just follow out.. many people were bbq and floating in the water at the very beginning when you park your cars

Clean, not as long of a trail as I expected. The river was pretty. And very flat.

More a walk than a hike. Been here plenty of times. Not bad. Summer weekends parking is tough and gets messy with folks who litter. Hit up the creamery for ice cream after!

Great local trail that is well marked. Recent Eagle Scout project built a brigde over a stream that feeds the Scantic river. Other Eagle scout project added a walkway over a swampy area of the trail.

The river views are really nice with several small water falls along the way. Not much of a hike more like a simple walk, very easy trail.

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.

Nice walk along the Scantic River. There are remains of the Hazard Powder Co along the trail. The hike from the river to the ridge is a little steep going up and quite steep coming down. There were quite a few fishing and some nice catches.

Went to scantic linear park east was nice and easy beautiful but wouldn't recomend goin in the water nice clay river bed definitely cool. Further down the road you can get to another part (west).

Cool trail. A little hard to find. It has picnic tables at the beggining which is perfect for those hot days when families come and go tubin down the river! It's a lot of fun. Aside from the hot day river tubbers, this place isn't too crowded

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.
