This is a meet up spot for men. Not family friendly. Wish it was because it’s a very nice trail. We did it but were very uncomfortable when we returned to the parking lot. I googled around and confirmed what I thought was going on.

This is a deceptively large patch of woods. There are some great trails (on west side) and some rocky ones (south and down the middle). Groton Parks and Rec is looking to decommission some of the poor or unmarked trails to improve the park. Great place for a dog walk or several mile loop hike.

Bugs pretty heavy in swamp and its a swamp but dry right now.Bet its real pretty in the fall. Will come back.

Nice easy trail! perfect for my dog. Even has a water fountain to fill the water bowl

Love this trail. Easy to walk. Has a little of everything. Woods, marsh, rocks, beach, and a bathroom at the end of the trail

Nice and easy. Beautiful views from the bluffs.

Easy trail along the shoreline. Great for dogs.

One of my favorite spots in SECT. Nice easy trail, beautiful views from the bluff.

Blue/Yellow trail- Steep climb, worth every second for the view.

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

Senic trail and good for hiking. Footing is difficult for running.

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 :)

Definitely challenging. You have to pay attention to the markers but they’re all blue. Muddy and sometimes you have to go through little streams and the rocks are wet. We had dogs and they had a tough time on the rocks. Might do it again now that we know what to expect. Wouldn’t recommend for someone who doesn’t want to spend a significant amount of time out. We had a member of our party who wanted to get back because it was challenging so we used the app to guide us back. I’d recommend pants due to some paths being overgrown and definitely a tick check at the end and some really good bug spray.

Easy walking around the main loop. A ton of trails to explore in and around the main loop. Great views.

Easy hike with some beautiful views! Lots of little trails you can take to extend the hike some.

My first trail of this nature in years and years. The southern part of the trail is pretty much undefined. You need to stop frequently and look for the blue-marked trees. More than a few downed trees blocking the ‘path.’ As other hikers, had to use my phone to get back on the path. Would do it again.

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!

Perfect spot for a run!

Path was rocky and easy to turn an ankle on but beautiful view at the midway loop. Definitely would run here again!

Easy hike, beautiful views, lots of people but not too crowded

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

Went in November, expected most leaves to be on the ground. Definitely rocky and lots of large roots sticking out. Needed to keep an eye on the ground which was ok because there wasn’t a ton to see. Wasn’t overly challenging, no steep inclines. The hardest part for me was staying on the trail in some locations. Some parts were wide open, others clearly marked, then there were some areas that i got lost (had to follow AllTrails to get back on track). Brought my small dog, who overall enjoyed it, just the parts of the trail that had overgrown or no clear path was the only issue. She loved jumping over the trees that had fallen down. Today it wasn’t super muddy, but could see where that would have been an issue as well. My Apple Watch tracked 3.25 miles for entire trip in about an hour. Overall a success!

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!

easy family friendly trail but heavy traffic.

Did the loop with my dogs, easy walk, and was surprised by the Dog park at the end! My dogs were happy to have some socializing after their hike.

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