Dike Point Interpretive Trail

Candlewood Lake, Connecticut's largest lake, was created to serve as the upper impoundment for our Rocky River pumped hydro storage station. Candlewood is a focal point of summer recreation in Connecticut, providing fresh-water recreation opportunities for thousands of people each summer. FirstLight's Dike Point Interpretive Trail on the north end of the lake provides great views of the lake and information about the changed landscape.
