Search Groton Connecticut

Bluff Point Coastal Reserve, about 2 miles east of Groton Heights, is the last significant undeveloped land along Connecticut's coast. One mile wide and half as long, the reserve preserves 806 acres of woodland, wetland and shoreline on Long Island Sound. A 100 acre tidal salt marsh, inland impoundments, and upland forest offer excellent hiking and nature study opportunities. In addition to hiking and nature viewing, visitors fish from the beach, sunbathe and picnic.
