To Kevin Doyle,
River Road, Kent is on the west side of the Housatonic River. Take Route 7 North to Kent and the intersection with Route 341. There is an obelisk at this intersection. Turn left/west on Route 341/Bridge Street, and cross the Housatonic River. Take the first (immediate) right hand turn (north) on Skiff Mountain Road. Proceed north ca. 1 mile, past the Kent School athletic fields, then some residential houses and fields. A gravel road then angles straight/right from Skiff Mountain Road. This is River Road, and it proceeds some 3 miles along the west bank of the Housatonic River. It is a classic birding spot, particularly in the spring. Given the heavy winter snow/ice, I have no idea how passable River Road is at present. Good luck.
