Loved this trail. Very well maintained. Used a stroller for the whole loop with only a little difficulty at times but nothing impassible. A lot of points to step off and see a lot of neat areas. Great for kids as well

Bluff Point is a wonderful trail that leads you out to views of Fishers Island and Long Island Sound. The beach makes for an adequate swim day, and the second half of the loop is steep enough to burn off lunch.

easily accessible heavily trafficked trail. If you go right at the fork in the beginning along the water, theres many places to grab a quiet spot of beach to your self :)

Great for trail running!l Loop is 4.5 miles. This is a gravel trail for the most part. Follow signs to Bluff Point to Sunset Rock to Mumford Cove. You will love the views too!

Really nice park, expect it to be very busy on nice weather days and long weekends in the summer months

I come here often and enjoy it. It is easy, but the scenery views are beautiful, especially when walking along the water. I also have incorporated rock climbing. When you find the right ones you can climb!! Also, there are trails that connect to Haley Brook Farm/Mumford Cove, so it makes it a much longer walk! You just need to know your way around, but markers are easy to follow and read!

Worth it for the views, but kind of a tedious walk out. I was envying the bike riders.

Comfortable and easy walking trail, great for kids. Unfortunately popular with horseback riders, so the nicest days mean dodging piles of manure. Otherwise nice, some nice historic sites and lovely view from the bluff.

Love this trail. Very easy walking trail, weekends are pretty busy so I prefer to go during the week since I take my dog.

Decent length of a trail with a couple smaller trails on the sides. Once you get to the end where the water is, it's very easy to lose track of time. Lots of rocks , few people fishing here and there. Great for kids and dogs. There's something for every one on this trail!

Great 3mil walk. I've done biking here definitely kicked my butt on the incline nothing major but definitely a workout. Dog friendly. Baby crabs on the water. A lot of nature in this park it's always a go to spot for any activity. Seen deers closed to the beach area. There is a cove. Very interesting!

A fair amount to explore. Main loop is very easy, however if you decide to venture off you can spend hours running the side trails, just watch out for mountain bikers and the occasional thorns.

this is a nice, easy, kid friendly trail. there is plenty to see from the bluff to the beach it's all beautiful. I recommend comfortable shoes even when just going to the beach as the beach is made up mostly of sharp seashells and jagged rocks. the bluff is definitely worth the walk. I take my family on this trail often.
