Windsor River Trail Description

The Windsor River Trail is a paved trail along the Connecticut River in Windsor Meadows State Park. The trail begins at the state park’s parking lot on E Barber St. The Captain John Bissell Trail, which crosses the Connecticut River, also begins here.  The Windsor River Trail travels through a forest. Near the southern end, it turns away from the river and crosses Deckers Brook. The trail ends at Meadow Rd, at the edge of the state park. Eventually, the trail may be extended south toward Hartford.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Windsor Meadows State Park (265 E Barber St).
