New Haven Hikers' Walk at Sleeping Giant

Hi folks! Please join us for an early fall saunter, 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 takes less than two hours and is the least challenging of the NH Walks hikes.

WHEN AND WHERE: Please meet us at the main SG entrance, across the street from Quinnipiac University. As usual, plan to arrive five minutes early.

Members converge by the big trail map at 9:55 or 10:00 and head out at five after.

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

$1-2 DONATION: Donations cover the annual cost of the website and ensure that the group remains active year-round. Please note that members who arrive without donations for any reason have always been welcomed with warmth and without question.

    I had a blast. When I left the castle I took a deer run to the purple trail which goes along the river.

    Hi Folks! I am looking forward to getting outside this weekend, and to seeing new faces as well as catching up with old friends! Please carpool with people you already know, if at all possible; the parking scene is going to be very intense. I literally dropped my jaw at the headcount for this hike; never even close, in five years!!! Thank you all so much for supporting the group, and I will see you soon. Sincerely, Sarah (Group Organizer) PS . . . Bring water!
