Having found people looking for the swan at the boat ramp who were unaware of how to access the alternate location on Clark Island, here is some info.
When not visible from the boat ramp (51 Cedar St), the trumpeter may be found on the west side of the pond by accessing trails to the bike path and Clark Island behind 51 Sumner St. (it's a business, a gym). There is trail parking behind the build. Go down to the bike path a few yards to the right and follow a wide path into the woods and onto the island.
If you don't spot the trumpeter right away, look for a sleeping swan and wait for it to stick its head up.
