    That was the best 5 minute hike I've done in a long time! :) (Apparently I don't follow directions well and caught up with the group a tad late.)

    Looks like the meet spot is just for car poolers but the hike starts off Westover. True?

    The hike leaves from the Stamford entrance to the park, on Merriebrook Lane, off Westover Rd. Parking is somewhat limited, so meeting at the Commuter Lot is recommended.
    Jane, the Commuter Lot is about 5 miles from the Stamford train station.

    Never been there, so a new adventure. Do you have an approximate time the hike will end?
