Easy trail that is basically a road except for the upper vista connector. Lower vista has better views. Both vistas need to be cut back. Picnic tables everywhere. Nice pond for the dogs to swim in.

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.
