Connecticut's shore belongs to the people--not just in terms of our environmental and cultural heritage, but in a specific legal sense as well.
Under the common law public trust doctrine, a body of law dating back to Roman times, all coastal states as sovereigns hold the submerged lands and waters waterward of the mean high water line in trust for the public.
In general, if an area is regularly wet by the tides, you are probably safe to assume that it is in the public trust and legally open to pedestrian passage. A waterfront owner may not exclude the public from lawful uses of the public trust area, just as an upland owner cannot exclude the public from driving or walking on the street in front of his or her house.
