A westward extension of the Shoreline Greenway Trail from Hammonasset Beach State Park is nearly complete. The 750-foot extension, connecting the existing one-mile trail in Hammonasset with Webster Point Road, is open and ready for use while we put a few finishing touches on it.  Walkers, hikers and bikers can now use the trail and local roads rather than a dangerous stretch of Route 1 to travel between Hammonasset State Park, downtown Madison, Madison’s beaches, shoreline recreational facilities and tourist destinations.

A cyclist stopped by to say hello to Perry Rianhard, SGT Trailmaster, as he worked on the bridge of the trail section connecting Hammonasset Beach State Park to Webster Point Road.
