We took Colby to this state park last week for some kayaking fun, stopping for a dip at one of the landing beaches in the middle of the cove. Boat traffic in the cove areas is restricted to smallcraft and boats must be under 8 MPH so it was a nice easy ride. Dogs must be on leash even on the little islands to help protect the piping plover nesting areas.

Nice peaceful trail. Lots of friendly people with their dogs. However, the trail is very woodsy-- lots of weeds. My dog had THIRTEEN ticks on him when we got home. Even in the tall grasses of Cape Cod, my dog has never gotten this many ticks. Maybe 1-2 at most. But 13?!?! Thankfully, we're diligent about applying his monthly flea and tick medicine but I guess it didn't function as a repellent. Be warned!
- OrangeJun. 13, 2018Great walk with beautiful views.
Get here early. The parking lot fills up fast. Make complete loop to take in coastal photo opportunities. There were lots of side trails numbered and will research for the next time. My two labs had a blast!
- LizFeb. 27, 2018Nice coastal park
I enjoy bringing my dogs to Bluff Point. The trail main trail is pretty wide and well maintained, but be aware that you are likely to encounter bicyclists and even people on horseback, so if your dog is reactive to those things, this might not be the best place to visit.
Dogs must be on leash (this is heavily enforced) and you must be careful the bikers don't run you over, as they aren't always very considerate.
There are great photo opportunities at the end of the trail when you reach the bluff overlooking the Long Island Sound.
- DavidMore than a year agoAwesome place
Great trails and the beach is real nice. I didn't see one breeding bird on the beacH too bad dogs not allowed to go on beach during prime season.
- StephanieMore than a year agoGreat Morning
We loved taking Barnaby here. Pups have to stay on a leash (which we upheld)... But others did not. We went early early and it was great. Lots of trails and little side paths to explore. Views of the Sound are incredible.

Great walking loop, with plenty of shade. Bring water, especially in summer. Too bad you can't go off leash, or allowed to take dogs on the beach during bird season.
