Description

A nice wide open road out to the Bluff and back. Very flat out to the bluff. Once you get there, there are great views of Fisher's Island and Long Island Sound.

Once you head east and back towards Mumford Cove, there are some undulating hills and then a continuous hill back up to the foundation area. It's then about a mile of downhill road back to the picnic area.

Flora & Fauna

Coastal flora. Inland areas have lots of prickers and brambles but mostly off-trail.
