Best Easy Day Hikes: Fairfield County (Falcon Guides)
Steve Mirsky

"This route takes you through some of the best views of Long Island Sound in Fairfield County. Winding past saltwater marsh, through oak groves, and alongside over 2 miles of beach, this hike is only one of the diverse activities that Sherwood Island offers. Public access to the Connecticut coast is hard to come by. You have to be vigilant and know exactly where to go for the best spots. In Fairfield County, Sherwood Island’s 235 oceanfront acres is the largest and most prominent oceanfront preserve open to the public. Trails, which are really access roads, are readily apparent. Following this route takes you along the park’s entire coast as well as some marsh and forested sections." Read more

"Sherwood Island State Park in Westport has the honor of being the first state park in Connecticut and one of the first in the United States. Sherwood Island’s 234 acres include marsh areas, wooded terrain, and more than a mile of beachfront. If you visit the island in the winter, you will probably have this stretch of beach to yourself. Children can bring along bird guidebooks and binoculars and try to identify sea birds and other feathered fellows that have decided to brave the New England winter." Read more
