In lieu of our clandestine camping aspirations, lets have a hike and a picnic.
**Since the parking fees at the park itself are somewhere around $10, we will be meeting at the Park & Ride in North Haven near the bus station at State St. and Devine St--It's right near where Rts 40 and 5 intersect.**
From the park & ride, we'll take 1-2 cars to the eastern parking lot and begin hiking the orange trail to the picnic area. Once there, we'll have ourselves a good ol' fashioned Apple Family BBQ then take the yellow trail back to the cars.
I'd appreciate if folks could pitch in a couple bucks as I'll be bringing burgers'n'dogs, paper goods and fixin's. There are supposedly grills there but I'm not 100% sure if they're readily available, so I'll be bringing my portable gas grill (ew, gross) as backup--if anyone has a camping grill they could bring that would be great. Feel free to bring something else to eat and we'll grill it up for ya.
We would eat AFTER the first leg of the hike, later in the afternoon, so eat a nice late breakfast!
