Bluff Point Professional Review and Guide
"At 800 acres, Bluff Point State Park is the largest piece of conservation land on Connecticut’s shore. While purchased by the state in 1963, the point was acquired in 1644 by John Winthrop, Jr., one of Connecticut Colony’s first governors. This 4.5-mile loop circles past Winthrop’s former homestead before arriving at scenic bluffs that line the rocky point. Before returning to the trailhead, enjoy a pleasant half-mile diversion along an undeveloped sandy beach. For those seeking further adventure, Bluff Point State Park also offers additional miles of unmarked paths along the quiet shores of Mumford Cove."
