Location Changed: Hike at Lake Wintergreen

  • May 18, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • Lake Wintergreen @ West Rock Ridge State Park

Hi folks! Hope you can join us for a nourishing hike and a bit of togetherness in the wilderness.

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. 

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.  




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 ensure that the group page remains active. Without the page, the group would not be what it is. Unlike free options for web-based organization of activities, the "meetup" service facilitates networking among a large and ever-growing number of participants, allowing for a constant influx of new members, and for this benefit there is a cost :) Thank you for helping to support this meetup through your donation and your participation!

    Missed you guys again. The 452 address takes you past the Lake Wintergreen parking lot. It should be changed to 29 Main St. I'll make it next time.

      I did, but I didn't post cause it was my only photo and didn't want the gore showing up on the home page.

    Can you be more specific about the level of difficulty and rough total time of the hike? Thanks!

      Hi Claudia, The hike at West Rock (Not sleeping giant; see above) takes 2 hours, involves one short, steep climb that 99% of people can push through, two great views, lots of flat walking on a road through the woods, and some moderate trail hiking. Includes breaks and chat time. Social, inclusive hike for non-sporty folks and we welcome those who are out of shape. Hope to see you!

      I should modify "99% of people" to read "99% of people who have attended this hike" ;) but that is still a lot of people over the years.

    The hike location has been changed due to quinnipiac university graduation across the street from Sleeping Giant. We are now hiking at West Rock. Sarah
