Southford Park hike with a nice picnic & games.

This is one of my favorite parks ( and conveniently located ). The park offers a nice, easy pace hiking trail with a small tower on top. After the hike we can have a lovely picnic. So everyone can bring a blanket and something light to munch on. Some of us might enjoy playing games like Frisbee, Badmington, soccer etc.

Four miles SE of Southbury. With easy-to-moderate grades, this loop travels downstream along Eight Mile Brook, ascends the hill rising east of the brook, and returns along Papermill Pond. Special attractions: Pond, falls, and brook; hemlock-hardwood forest; covered bridge; millstones, a steam-engine foundation, and remnant sluice pipe; mountain laurel; fall foliage.

    I have been attempting to post online the patience both you showed toward
    me this afternoon. but everytime I highlight reply I never see a box o write in/
    It mgiht be because I wasnt signed up. If thats the case- Can you post for
    me what a nice walk it was starting out across the the bridge and finishing
    through the covered bridge. Just as we came in it was misting which felt good
    against out hot torsos. Thanks for both of your patience especially crossing
    rocks and for finding me a walking stick, I look forward to joining you again.
