Bluff Point State Park and Reserve, Groton
|Located at the end of Depot Road, this approximately 800 acre State reserve lies between the Poquonnock River and Mumford Cove. One of the largest natural areas in the State, it contains not only a variety of wildlife, but also a barrier beach, steep cliffs, forested lands and tidal wetlands. You can paddle up beyond the railroad bridge to the north (about 1/3 mile) and down to Bushy Point Beach (about 1 1/4 miles). Hiking and running trails offer vistas of Long Island Sound, Mumford Cove and the Pequonnock River. Public parking available. State-owned. To help you reach Bluff Point State Park and Reserve, some routes leading to this site are posted with the brown and white Long Island Sound Access sign .|
