Entirely on state land, this lasso-shaped hike explores Salmon River State Forest and Day Pond State Park. Its highlights include the old Comstock covered bridge (refurbished in 2011), limited Salmon River access and viewing, the reflective beauty of Day Pond, rock walls and cellar ruins, and an unexpected waterfall find. This is a Connecticut blue trail, marked by the signature blue blazes. It begins with your passing through the historic covered bridge that dates to 1791 and spans the shallow Salmon River. Upon crossing, the trail swings left. Sycamores contribute to the river’s shore. This attractive, slow-moving, rocky-bottomed river supports juvenile Atlantic salmon, a species decimated by industrial pollution at the turn of the twentieth century. The state forest protects the river watershed and species dependent on the river.
