Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: In Bristol. The main entrance road is on Route 114, and is framed by a pair of bull statues. Road bears left where going straight leads to Bristol Town Beach on the upper Bay. Colt State Park no longer has an entry fee. Parking options abound: small lot by the rotary next to the old entry station, near the rose garden, at the boat launch, next to the inlet, at the fishing pier, along the seawall, several lots near the woods, and the joggers parking lot off of Poppasquash Road. The loop road inside the park is one way. The link below has a map of the park.

Comments
Comments: The day's 3 mile promenade started with a partial loop through the woods, went down along the rocky shore, traveled along the seawall, passed the fishing pier and the statue of late senator John Chaffee, over the old bridge across the inlet, past the boat launch, around the back side of the inlet, out onto Poppasquash Road along Bristol Harbor by the marina, past Coggeshall Farm Museum, and back to the car.
