The snow has finally cleared from this path! It's a nice place to visit to see the signs of spring.
This is a nice, mostly level walk along a paved path. It can be noisy because it runs along side RT 15, but it's a beautiful place despite its proximity to the highway. We walk the entire distance, rather briskly, to its current endpoint where the Quinnipiac River flows under RT 15 then turn around and walk back. This usually takes about an hour.
An interesting feature of this park are the wooded trails that lead off the linear trail. These unmarked trails intertwine throughout the Emerson Leonard Wildlife Area which encompasses the land between the linear path and the Quinnipiac River. Keep in mind these trails sometimes end abruptly in the brush or lead only to the river. Enter these woods only if you have a good sense of direction or don't mind a bit of an adventure. Walking in the Emerson Leonard Wildlife Area is not included in this event at this time. I mention this for information purposes only.
And for those of you who practice meditation, a labyrinth nestled among small manicured gardens and a natural setting awaits along side this linear trail. This is a park for body, mind, and spirit.
