New Haven Hikers' Westwoods Walk

Hi folks! Let's explore the springtime woodland in all its glory as we take a good long walk in great company. This Meetup will take place at West Woods Trails, which is a Guilford Land Trust preserve in Guilford, CT.

WHEN AND WHERE: As usual, plan to arrive five minutes early.

Meet at 11:55 or 12:00 at the Sam Hill Road entrance, and we will begin hiking at five after. This hiking loop is manageable for the average person, but will take two hours.

Please consider making a SUGGESTED DONATION of $2. Please also note that members who cannot contribute to the donation pool are, and always have been, welcome on these hikes.

DIRECTIONS: For this hike, we will meet at the Sam Hill Road entrance. From I-95 exit 57. Go east on Route 1 approximately one and a quarter mile. At the second stop light make a right hand turn onto River Street. When the road ends, turn right onto Route 146 (Water Street). Travel a little over a mile, and make a right hand turn onto Sam Hill Road just before the railroad bridge. The trail entrance with parking is immediately on your left.

    I just realized that this hike is on Saturday. I thought it was Sunday. Unfortunately I can't make it since I have something else scheduled. Darn, I was really looking forward to the hike.

      Julie, you were correct about the day. However, since the initial posting, the hike was rescheduled from Sunday to Saturday. Sincere apologies and hope you can join us next time! Take care, Sarah (Organizer)

    Hi folks! I hope the weather cooperates this weekend. General weather procedure is as follows: if rain is falling from the sky, we will NOT meet up. If the ground is wet and rain is not falling, we WILL meet up. Hope to see you! Sincerely, Sarah (Organizer)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
