River Highlands State Park is one of the newest parks in Connecticut. It was dedicated in 2001, preserving 177 acres of former pasture and farming lands. It has several outstanding views of the Connecticut River from the high bluffs. We can even walk down to the river’s edge by the Devil’s Blowhole. Who knows what evil could lurk there.
The parking lot is near a railroad crossing. It is small, so take care not to block others in. There is also limited parking along the road.
This will be an easy walk of about 1.6 miles with average ups and downs. Social walking pace. We will be out for 1 hour, or as fate may have it. I have only visited this place once, and I will be following the trail map.
Calm and well behaved dogs are welcome. Children are welcome as long as they can go the distance.
The walk will be rescheduled if there is a threat of rain.
