Traveled here in mid-October during the height of the migration season along the coast - saw lots of small birds including red-bellied woodpeckers, great cormorants, a great blue heron, cardinals, lots of blue jays, a gold finch, lots of warblers, and a few swans. The area is beautiful and the paths are clear, easy to travel, and very clean. There was a fee to enter the park but it was well worth it once I saw the size of this place! Lots of parking, a concession area along the beach, a golf course with a driving range, multiple walking trails, and fishing locations.
There were only two negatives for this experience: 1.) It would have been nice to have some clear maps of the entire park with all the field #s clearly labeled. 2.) The bathrooms along the 3/4 mile boardwalk that travels along the Long Island Sound could really use a make-over.... yuck!
Overall, for a hiking enthusiast, I found it to be a great trip - I thoroughly enjoyed the hikes and the views.
