5 Saltwater Hikes

Most of Connecticut’s popular hiking trails are in the upstate hills and woods, but there are some very good ones right on the shoreline that bring saltwater views and the smell of the sea.

Here are five, moving from east to west, that make a great way to spend a nice morning or afternoon.
