Nine hardy hikers led by Mike Gambardella enjoyed the morning, including a Vietnam vet with his grandaughter. We walked on a side trail loop to see the marsh area where Shoreline Greenway Trail’s East Haven Team will construct a boardwalk soon, to link our Trail to the Bradford Preserve Land Trust property and to the Cosey Beach area.
Along our lovely shaded Trail we passed the huge glacial erratic (boulder) next to a grove of wild clethra, ending at the Trailhead parking lot. From there, we walked along the road to a back entrance into Farm River State Park where East Haven Scouts have cleared a path to the lookout point along Farm River. [Read more...]

A wonderful ribbon-cutting event in East Haven on a sunny October 4 marked the opening of the first completed 1½ mile trail of the Shoreline Greenway Trail in East Haven – from D. C. Moore School, down Pevetty Drive, through the Farm River State Park to Short Beach Road. The Stony Creek pink granite final topping completes the trail for use not just by walkers, but by bicyclists and families with strollers. The next step is to expand the trail thru the Bradford Preserve.
Mayor Joseph Maturo cut the ribbon with local politicians and the East Haven volunteers who worked on the trail. Barbara Brow, Chair of the East Haven Shoreline Greenway Trail team, thanked everyone for their help, saying “You are the wind beneath our feet.”
