Take exit #5 from I-95,
at end of ramp turn right on US-1 and proceed to the next traffic light
(about .15 mile), , turn right on to Sound Beach Avenue and head south past
a town park and through Old Greenwich until you reach a stop sign(about
1.75 miles), here one can only go right or left,
turn right on to the narrow Shore Road and proceed (about 0.6 mile) to the
In the Park Keep to the right along the roadway as it follows much of the
shore line (about 3 miles in all) counter clockwise. Along it are various
overlooks and periodic parking places.
Check overlooks to the N from the boat storage area(Greenwich Cove), NW
flats and Sand Island from near the tall gray building, SW from the SW
picnic area, South from near the stone wall, particularly SE from the SW
Point, and E from the turn-around near the northern part of the beach.
In addition much of the SE shore and two salt ponds can only be covered on
foot using the dike path paralleling the shore.
Look over the thickets in the interior of the Point, especially around the
Holly Grove, and near the Cow Barn area.at the high NW section of the
park(NW of Eagle Pond).
Hope this helps.
