On my short ride toward the eastern parking lot along the river, I thought this tree in the water was interesting
Norwalk River Valley TrailThe trail starts north out of the parking lot in Merwins Park. It actually is quite scenic along the river - imagine it on a nice sumer day will all the trees and plant in full greenery!
Later historical research confirmed my suspicion that the dam had a mill on the east side.
Also, just north of the dam, an old foundation is visible next to the trail. As this older topo map shows, the trail was actually a road that went up to this building.
Not super exciting and awfully short, the ride was nevertheless fun - fresh air and riverside rides are always a pleasure..
