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.
