This walkway starts just off Rt 1 in Groton, on the east side of the Poquonnock River. It's a boardwalk to leads to the parking lot at Bluff Point State Park. It took us about 15 minutes each way.

This was a perfect, easy walk with the grandkids. The boardwalk goes along a water inlet for 1/2 mile and ends up at highway 1. The boardwalk is very sturdy and wide. There are benches along the way if you want to stop and take...More
