Unfortunately icy conditions on the trail are forcing us to cancel the March 7 walk in East Haven. Stay tuned for information on our upcoming walks.
The East Haven Shoreline Greenway Trail was the ‘Host Town’ on Saturday, April 5th for the “First Saturday walk”
Twenty-five participants took advantage of the pleasant Spring-like day.
The East Haven Land Trust gave the East Haven Town Team of the Shoreline Greenway Trail permission to route our trail through land trust property known as the Bradford Preserve. East Haven Town Team members accessed Federal/State grant funds to begin the design and permit phase of this trail section. Once the design and permit phases are finished, construction of a half-mile long main pedestrian Trail across the Preserve will commence. When completed the trail will connect The East Haven section of the shoreline (Cosey Beach Avenue) to our trail at D. C. Moore School.
Hike into the FARM RIVER STATE PARK from our Trail by the D.C. Moore Elementary School Hike, with SGT leaders Barbara Brow and Michael Gambardella. We’ll walk to an overview of the Bradford Preserve tidal wetlands, then along our 1200 ft. granite-topped trail to our Trailhead, continue down Pevetty Drive into Farm River State Park, natural, peaceful and pristine. Osprey nests, caves, glorious views of the Farm River. Easy walk, one short steep area. Approx. 1.5 miles, 1 1/2 hours.
