Directions:     

To Start from Windsor Meadows State Park; From I-291 westbound take Exit 3 to Deerfield Rd and head left. Follow road around to Windsor Ave (Route 159) and turn left. Take your first left along E Barber St and follow to the park & boat launch. Trail starts on your right.

The Windsor River Trail is an offshoot of the Capt. John Bissell Trail in South Windsor which connects to the Charter Oak Greenway in Manchester. It travels south along the Connecticut River and will eventually connect to the Riverfront Trail in Hartford. Another trail is located to the north in Windsor called the Windsor Center River Trail .

Starting from Windsor Meadows State Park; A boat launch and picnic tables are located here.

Note; Northwest of the parking lot is the trailhead for the Capt. John Bissell Trail which travels east over the Connecticut River into South Windsor.

The paved trail begins across from the parking lot heading south following alongside the Connecticut River. The trail meanders through the river's floodplain with several river overlooks. At 0.4 miles the trail turns inland as it encounters Deckers Brook. After crossing a bridge over the brook the trail heads north past an industrial building with the RR tracks in sight and then abruptly ends after 0.7 miles next to a large Beech tree and open fields. Future plans call fro continuing the trail south across Deckers Brook towards Hartford.
