New Haven Hikers' Westwoods Walk

Hi folks! Let's get some exercise while we walk and talk with a group of friends.

LOCATION: This Meetup will take place at West Woods Trails, which is a Guilford Land Trust preserve in Guilford, CT. The park has many entrances, but for this hike we will meet at the SAM HILL ROAD entrance.

WHEN AND WHERE: Meet at 2:55 or 3:00 at the Sam Hill Road entrance, and begin hiking at five after. We will hike for about two hours.

COST: Please contribute one dollar towards the monthly fee that is charged by the Meetup Website. Please bring any contributions with you on the day of the hike. Please donate no more than $12 per year -- you keep track.

TRAIL MAPS are available at Bishops Orchards and other locations as indicated on the park website, if you are interested in getting to know the park.

DIRECTIONS: For this hike, we will meet at the Sam Hill Road entrance. From I-95 exit 57. Go east on Route 1 approximately one and a quarter mile. At the second stop light make a right hand turn onto River Street. When the road ends, turn right onto Route 146 (Water Street). Travel a little over a mile, and make a right hand turn onto Sam Hill Road just before the railroad bridge. The trail entrance with parking is immediately on your left.

PARKING NOTE: There is limited parking at this entrance. Please carpool with other members if possible.

    Had a great time on this walk in the woods! Nice friendly people led by Sarah who does a fantastic job. Thank goodness for GPS and staying off 95 due to the holiday weekend! We found the trail head location with perfect directions and no problems!
