“short but memorable”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

The Housatonic River Walk is tucked away and not obvious to find, but is well worth the effort to locate it. It only takes an hour or so to traverse the two segments, but they provide a dramatic connection to the river running through this historic old town.

“Scenic and peaceful”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

This was a short and pretty walk. There are a few steps but my 83 year old mother was able to navigate them just fine. The length of section by the Rite-Aid was perfect for her.

“nice short walk”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

steps take you down to the river and it's an interesting, hidden gem of a short walk. closed in winter because it could get slippery. lovely in other parts of the year. you walk along behind houses and the river is rushing by down below. do over and over; it doesn't get boring

“So nice....”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

.....to be near the river. I just wish it was longer! There's a gap, but the directions to the next part were very good.

“Would have never found this by myself”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

Beautiful short walk, A friend showed it to me and I really enjoyed the quiet. Not to crowded, but hard to find. If you can find a local, ask them. Nice break in the day.
