Shoreline Greenway Trail is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to building a 25-mile continuous path for bicyclists, walkers and hikers on the Connecticut Shoreline from Lighthouse Point in New Haven through East Haven, Branford, and Guilford to Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison.
Good News in Guilford! Public comments about our first proposed Shoreline Greenway Trail section in Guilford were very positive from many of c. 50 folks attending an August 13th Public Hearing.
The nearly one-mile Trail section will be on the south side of Route One, going west from the East River to Boston Street, completely separate from the road on CT DOT right-of-way, and will vary from 10’ to 8’ wide. Homeowners along the proposed section who were present expressed their enthusiasm about the plan. The Trail section will be functional and aesthetically pleasing, using guidelines established by Shoreline Greenway Trail. [Read More...]
Our ‘First Saturday’ Walk in September will offer walkers the chance to watch and meet members of the Madison Art Society. Artists will set up their easels along the trail en plein air and hikers may stop and watch and talk with the artists. The walk will take place on Saturday, September 6 at 10 am.
Later in the day, there will be a reception and exhibition of the completed, framed trail scenes at Friends & Co. Restaurant in Madison.
Featured on the hike will be a new section of trail completed since our last walk there and the always-beautiful views of the salt marshes. Easy two-mile walk. Meet at the SGT Eastern Trailhead parking lot off Rte. 1 just east of the Hammonasset entrance road. Directions: Exit 62 from I 95 south to Rte. 1. Left onto Rte. 1 and right into the Hammonasset Park service road. Questions: Ginny at firstname.lastname@example.org.
