New Haven Hikers' Walk at Sleeping Giant

Hi folks! Please join us for an easy midsummer hike with a welcoming group of friends-in-the-making.  This Meetup will take place at Sleeping Giant State Park which is a state park located in Hamden, CT. This hike usually takes less than two hours.

$1-2 DONATION: Please note that members who arrive without donations for any reason have always been welcomed with warmth and without question.

WHEN AND WHERE: As usual, plan to arrive five minutes early. [Please note that parking along the street will likely be necessary if the weather is anything resembling nice.]

Please meet us at the main SG entrance, across the street from Quinnipiac University. Members converge by the big trail map at 11:55 or 12:00 and head out at five after.

DIRECTIONS: Please see Sleeping Giant State Park website. Parking is free on the street

    Sorry I missed you all, but somehow I put the wrong address on my gps and by the time I finally found the park it was past 12:10pm. See you next time.

      As I discovered, it's easy to catch up to the group on the tower trail. For future reference for everyone, 12:10 would have worked at Sleeping Giant. I think even up to 12:20 you could catch us.

    I just posted a bunch of plant and fungus photos for those of us learning the names of things. Add comments to the photos if you know what they are.

    Hi. This will be 1st time hiking with a group. Can someone tell me what I need to be prepared. I know water is a must, what about clothing? Sneakers ok?

    1 · June 24, 2013

    • Sarah

      Sneakers work fine for this hike. For all hikes but the sleeping giant hike, hiking boots are more appropriate. Sarah (Organizer)

    • sue

      Thanks for the advice on what to bring. I am looking forward to this. Something new and healthy, and meeting new friends. what gets better than this? I am bringing my camera, never know what I may get on film. See you all then. Sue/Spirit

  • Lisa

    Is this hike ok for kids too?

    June 25, 2013

    • Todd

      I would say yes

      June 25, 2013

  • Tracy A.

    Hiya! Looks like our pets will enjoy a dogs' day out too :)
    If it's okay, we'll bring our small dog (Cleo, a good-natured 14 lb Tibetan Spaniel), on leash and with a carrier for when she gets tired. We got her a lyme vaccine and will get some tick repellent with Deet for good measure. I'm looking forward to meeting fellow hikers and pups for a day on the trails. --Tracy, Rene and Ravi

    Can we do the blue trail

    June 24, 2013

    • Sarah

      Nope! The trails for this group are established to best meet the needs of the group, which is diverse and intended to be welcoming to inexperienced hikers. Sarah (Organizer)
