Hi folks! Hope you can make it on short notice -- and that the rain has cleared by noon. WEATHER: If rain is falling from the sky, we will NOT meet up. If the ground is wet but no rain is falling, we WILL meet up.
WHEN AND WHERE: This Meetup will take place at West Rock, which is a Connecticut State Park located in New Haven and Hamden. This is a walk paced for the average person, and may take up to 2 hours.
PARKING NOTE: There are various entrances to the park, but we will be parking at Lake Wintergreen.
DIRECTIONS: DO NOT use the directions from the park website. Please use Google Maps (or, your GPS) to find the intersection of Main Street and Valerie Court in Hamden -- this is the closest possible intersection that is actually listed on Google Maps, as the lot itself is NOT listed. From Main and Valerie, drive DOWNHILL on Main Street and you will see the parking area at the bottom of the hill, where Main Street bends to the right.
$1-2 DONATION: Donations cover the annual cost of the website and in this way ensure that the group remains active; there is an ongoing charge for the site despite seasonal inactivity of a hiking group.
