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.

It was well marked until you near the river. Then just bushwhack to it. There is a horse ring that seems out of place but it’s a nice way to spend an hour.

The mosquitoes were ridiculous. My husband and I wanted to take our 15 month old out to let her get some practice walking. We had to run off the trail and into the adjacent cemetery to try and escape the swarm.


We hope to return again.

A little confusing, but we managed! Would probably do it again
