Last Updated: May 03, 2014
Length: Savin Rock Trail; 1.9 miles
Difficulty: Easy. Flat paved trail. Wide open to the elements and wind.
From I-95 take exit 24 to Route 162 (Saw Mill Rd) and head right (southeast). Continue straight on Kelsey Ave which brings you to Captain Thomas Blvd. It appears all of the parking lots located along the trail require a resident permit except the Savin Rock Conference Center parking lot which is located straight ahead.
The Savin Rock Trail travels from Bradley Point Park to Sandy Point along a waterfront greenway that includes beaches, parks and the Savin Rock Conference Center & Museum. Views of Long Island Sound exist along most of the trail. At Sandy Point a walking path leads out to a Bird Sanctuary.
The Savin Rock Trail is part of the EAST COAST GREENWAY , a planned biking & hiking route stretching 3,000 miles from Maine to Florida. When complete it will traverse 15 states with a mostly off-road path.
Starting from Ocean Ave:
Note; From the Sea Bluff Beach parking lot you can either follow the sidewalk east to where the paved trail meets Ocean Ave or take a boardwalk over Cove River to the trail at Bradley Point.
From Ocean Ave the paved trail travels through Veterans' Memorials at Bradley Point Park and out to Bradley Point. This is where Savin Rock is located. The trail then continues east along the waterfront and beaches before passing by the Savin Rock Conference Center & Museum at 0.5 miles. Lots of docks jut out into the water. You'll pass by Savin Rock Park and Old Grove Park where you'll find restrooms at 0.8 miles. You then travel through West Walk, a private beach area before coming to Washington Ave and Beach St at 1.2 miles. Here the trail travels between Beach St and the waterfront and beaches. Pass by the entrance to Morse Park on your left at 1.6 miles. After crossing over Oil Field Creek you'll pass by the Beach Street parking lot where the trail ends at 1st Ave after 1.9 miles.
