Savin Rock Trail Description

The Savin Rock Trail offers just over a mile of paved pathway along West Haven’s coastline. Along the way, you’ll enjoy picturesque views of Long Island Sound and access to its sandy beaches. The west end of the trail is anchored by historical Bradley Point Park, where British troops invaded in 1779.

The trail is also part of the East Coast Greenway, an expansive trail system that will span 2,900 miles along the Eastern Seaboard.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms can be found on the trail’s west end in Bradley Point Park, though note that there’s a parking fee.

Savin Rock Trail Reviews

Short, but has fringe benefits

July 2021, midweek afternoon
After a 2 hour drive from my home in New Paltz, NY, there is a cheapish pay parking lot with a beach right on the Long Island Sound. Maximum time allowed was 4 hours, plenty to ride eastward on part trail, mostly city streets, over to the light house park, making it a much longer ride, 26 roundtrip miles I think. When I got back, hot and sweaty, I changed my bike clothes in the parking lot outhouse and soaked in the nice ocean water. I went back a second time 6 weeks later just to ride westward along urban streets for an hour. Again, in late August I really enjoyed soaking in warmish ocean water with only 2 other people visible.

(This is our secret biking place...don't share!)

Parking Limited due to COVID

This was a lovely, but popular walk. The only issue is that all but one small car park has been closed to non-local residents due to COVID. So unless you have a parking permit, you’ll need to head to Palace Street where there are a small number of metered parking spaces.

Paved- high pedestrian foot traffic!!

This bike path is paved and has good ocean views. And a LOT of walkers. There is a designated bike lane, no one seemed to care but did reluctantly allow room when announced. There was a DJ by the pier, an ice cream truck and portapotty. Parking at Bradley Point Park was by meter machine at $1.5p/hr. Too heavily populated to return. My husband had a bike trailer with our boys. I was the lead announcing our coming
