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.
