CT: Fairfield County- Redding- Collis P. Huntington State Park (Kayaking, Summer 2020)

Collis P Huntington State Park was my second kayak launch site. Bigger than the lake at Seth-Low Pierrepont but still narrow enough to feel safe and potentially see wildlife by the waters edge.

Now that I am a bit more comfortable I decided to have a bit more fun!

The beginning of the launch was great into a narrow sliver of water to then traveling under not one but TWO foot bridges.

After the first footbridge you can continue to the left or you can go to the right under the second foot bridge. When you go to the right the alcove is even narrower so you can imagine yourself in some far off land. But you have comfort in viewing the larger lake right beyond!

What was also fun about this more intimate setting is being able to talk with others on the lake. We learned about recommended corners to find wildlife and it’s always fun to be introduced to the dogs which lead the way!

One area I like to photograph is a small stone lighthouse on an island. The island is a bit buggy so remember to check for ticks on these jaunts but was fun for a quick stop

This was definitely a fun local jaunt for a relaxing evening kayaking and looking for some photo ops! On to find other kayaking adventures!
