Lake Wintergreen at West Ridge State Park, Hamden

This is always a good, mellow hike.  I love to return there as seasons change.  It's beautiful any time of year. 

It's difficult to pin down an exact address for this location.  Park in the lot on Main Street.  This lot is located at a sharp turn in the road before/or right after the intersection with Wintergreen Ave.  It is also the parking lot for the boat launch.

    It looks like the rain is allowing us an hour's hike. I was just now outside with my dog and it's not raining in Wallingford. The hourly forecast has the rain coming in more towards noon. So, I'll be there... who's with me?! Oh, and due to the forecast, we'll wait only five minutes or so. Here's my numbers ... [masked]

    Thanks Joanne... I'll be sure to check!
    Also, when you say "good mellow hike," does this mean sneakers would be acceptable to wear?

      Welcome Lauren. Sneakers should be OK for this hike. This is not a "back woods" location. And there are no steep inclines on the trail. However, there are some large rocks that the trail maneuvers around at the south end of the lake. You may want to look at the event photos from the previous hike in this location on September 19th entitled "Love me some more Lake Wintergreen" to get an idea of the terrain. Here's hopin' the rain will hold off.

    I'm checked the forecast and it's calling for a 60-70% chance of rain with temps in the mid 50's for tomorrow morning. I don't mind walking in a light rain, but I don't want to get soaked. So I'll post an update in the morning around 9. If this walk does not go on tomorrow, it will be rescheduled for Monday (11/11) morning at 9:30.
