3. Hardwoods and Hemlocks

To begin your walk follow the white blazed footpath into the woods keeping the river on your left. Stroll on an elevated trail that winds its way through a forest of mixed hardwoods and hemlocks punctuated by a soft palette of colorful wildflowers that change with the seasons.

In 15 minutes, you will reach a fork in the trail, bear left, and continue following the white blazes. Walk along a narrow tree shaded path that wends its way above the Housatonic River, revealing a bird's eye view of boulder strewn rapids, tranquil still water and the abundant wildlife of this area.
