We visit Bluff Point several times during the year. There are great hiking/biking/running/just walking trails from the parking lot to the point. It is about a mile to the point-that portion is fairly level with a wide path. When you are almost to the point, there is a pebble beach area that extends out into the cove for about .3... More

Lovely trails, quiet tranquil woods and water. Lots of wonderful little slices of heaven to discover. Must see the giant rock and little salt water ponds. Lots of dog walkers, runners and fisherman. Watch out for equestrian excrement, as it's a definite locale for that. Yes, that's right. Horse poop.

I haven't been to Bluff Point in years and loved it as much as before. You start walling along the marsh, then through the woods, and then come out and overlook Long Island Sound. It is a great place to walk. It was a cold day but many people were enjoying the park. It is worth a stop if you... More

Beautiful place to hike or just enjoy the scenery. Also would be a great place to swim or just watch the planes across the water take off on a nice day. Some questionable characters sometimes hang around here but they usually don't bother you if you don't bother them.

If you stay to perimeter, you will circle back to start. Otherwise many unmarked off shoots and cut throughs. Great trails, beautiful scenery. Husband and I ran a beautiful 4-5 mile loop yesterday, great way to start the weekend. Lots of walkers, dogs and bikers. Recommend.

We did the walk in good weather (Indian Summer), and enjoyed the views, the birds, the forest and the shores. Takes more than an hour to walk up to the Point and back, but was very nice

Good location for a 5 mile run in the morning. Quiet with great views of the shore. Get there at dawn to enjoy sunrise light on the beach. Not too hilly but also not just a boring run on the shore so a nice bit of variety.

It is a good shore point with very nice views and a nice spot for picture opporunities. You might see some water birds. If you just want to walk around, brung a chair and relax you will enjoy it. The airport is nearby so you might get the planes taking off and landing but as long as you know that... More

I didn't walk around a lot, just walked the outskirts of parking lot at waters edge, unpleasant. Foamy water. Across water is airport runway.
