“Hidden in plain sight”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

My wife and I took our dogs here for an afternoon walk. We had downloaded the trail map from the CT state park web page. There has been a lot of what seems to be unauthorized trail creation and blazing. This made for a lot of confusion as we tried to navigate once we turned away from the river walk. The trails that were supposedly on our map were poorly maintained and the blazing was almost non-existent. Still this was a beautiful little park. The walk along the ridge next to the river offered some really nice views and we had the park to ourselves. The camping area was well kept and gave us access to the river (camping is only for river travelers). All in all a sweet little park.
