New Haven Hikers' Walk at Sleeping Giant

Hi folks! Hope you can join us for a nourishing hike and a bit of togetherness in the wilderness. Hoping you agree that it will be a bonus if the snow lingers -- or if more is falling! 

The hike will not be cancelled in the case of snow, barring treacherous driving conditions.  

WHEN AND WHERE: 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.

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 DONATION: Donations cover the cost of the website and ensure that the group remains active year-round and year to year, even during slow seasons.  Be assured that members who arrive without donations for any reason have always been welcomed with warmth and without question.

    Thanks for organizing today's outing. I've put an animated GPS track of today's hike at
    http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=2654874&code=9abc71fae5ef65d2231aa8f53e13e3d5 . Click the little orange zig-zag in the lower right to follow the bouncing blue ball and see the elevation changes; it goes in circles as it follows the path up the tower. _D

    I see 2 hikes listed from you for Sun Feb. 2. 10 a.m. at Sleeping Giant, and 12 noon at Lake Wintergreen. Am I reading that correctly?
