Just a hop down the Stony Brook from the Chauncey trail and yet it feels quite different. The beaches are shallower, the river more approachable, the woods denser and everything a degree more wild. Outcroppings of rock platforms repeat all along the shoreline like mini stages, or classrooms, as the case may be.
I recommend parking at the end of Provinceline Road where the pedestrian bridge marks a dramatic start to the path.
AS A WINE….
A New Zealand Syrah that’s impressive and powerful but also nuanced and storied and, at moments, almost overwhelms you.
