This walk is amazing and it's right here in East Haven. Ledge cliffs overlook a huge pristine salt marsh with bird nesting platforms. There is a cave and riverfront park where you can look north up the Branford river to the old Nellie Greens and down all the way to the Sound. This is truly a local treasure.
