The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) today announced the planned reopening of the Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail on Saturday, June 29, 2019. The southern entrance to the trail has been closed due to a nesting Bald Eagle and due to the on-going redevelopment of the former Montgomery Mills building by Beacon Communities LLC.
The trail can now be reopened from the south and signage will direct visitors to parking and the trail entrance, which is being redesigned to accommodate the new residential apartments in the Montgomery Mills building. Vehicle travel will no longer be permitted along the towpath between the canal and the mill.
