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!

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.

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.
