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.

It's a great place for a walk, jog, run, biking, and just for plain beach moments. All the stuff in one place..very convenient getaway for those moments when you need it the most. You can also Kayak, go fishing, swimming, bird watching, for bbqs, picnics, etc. It can get a bit busy during the summer time but even then it's... More

A great place to walk- I've gone several times and I always bring my dog (on a leash). A peaceful, easy walk along the water is great any time of day. I've seen lots of bike riding and kayaking too.

Easy three mile loop on the periphery, well maintained dirt road/path (no vehicles), with views of the water and marshes all the way. Across the water is the (not busy) airport for private planes, then views of Fisher's Island and the lighthouses. Great variety of people there, fishing, swimming, walking, biking -- but not crowded on a fine summer day... More

....so this means the place is not maintained very well. Like every other park in the state this one is in decline. But the beauty of the surroundings overcomes the neglect. This is still a great place to visit and hike. There is a beach, but its mainly stones and seashells.

This is one of my favorite spots in CT. Whether you are looking to hike, mountain bike, swim, fish, kayak, or simply lay on the beach, this place is great for it all. The main trail is quite large (like you can drive a bus down it) and will take you down to either a beach on your right side... More

I am always looking for a nice place to run when traveling and this place was great. Nice paths in the woods and along the side for the water.
