Between the boulder and the kiosk, a triple black-square-on-yellow blaze marks the start of the Manaticut Point Spur Trail. Head into the woods on this trail. Soon, you'll cross two branches of a stream on rocks, with several abandoned sections of concrete pipe adjacent to the stream, and pass by a huge fractured rock. A short distance beyond, you’ll cross another stream.

Gorgeous & Secluded trail
Lovely trail that didn't feel too heavily traveled. The view at the top was gorgeous- it was a clear day and we could see the NYC skyline! Nothing too rigorous, but it had enough ups-and-downs to keep it interesting.

This hike looks secluded
<p>This hike looks secluded enough and challenging enough for any hiker that just wants to enjoy what nature has to offer us. Thanks for the directions and all the pertinent information.</p>
