This trail is one of my family's favorite destination in the area especially during the day. At night, the stretch between Paddleboston to Mystic Parkway bridge gets seriously buggy so you may want to avoid it. The loop is an easy going one hour or so walk at a casual pace. There are plenty of wildlife to see along the way from swans, cormorants, ducks, herons, and sometimes even egrets.

You can rent a kayak or canoe from Paddleboston and enjoyed the Mystic River as well which I've done a few times.
