East Windsor, CT
This section is comprised of Town Farm Road in Enfield to
Mahoney Road in East Windsor.
There are several access points going downstream from Enfield through East Windsor towards its confluence with the Connecticut River in
East Windsor Hill. You can start at Town Farm Road in Enfield - the next point would be in Melrose around the remains of the suspension bridge – on to the next
point at the filter beds, they just before the remains of another bridge – the last take out point is at Mahoney Rd.
This is truly a beautiful stretch of the Scantic. There is a good deal of undeveloped land on both sides of the river since the adjacent property is owned by
the Town of East Windsor and the State of Connecticut. Due to this there is considerable protection for wildlife such as songbirds, muskrat, deer, owls, and
beaver. Since there are many overhanging trees, it is also home to a variety of fish.
The one caveat, however, is that there are many fallen trees blocking the river particularly in the area from Town Farm Rd. to Melrose. As mentioned earlier,
one of the SRWA’s ongoing projects is to create a “canoe trail” and this is one of the areas we will be targeting.
