The house is located at the intersection of Vinegar Hill Rd and Long Cove Rd in Ledyard, CT. The park surrounds the farmhouse that was built in the 1700's.
This hike is beginner friendly. It is 1.5 miles long and should not take more than an hour. It is a very easy hike in the woods on well marked trails. There are some elevation gains, but most are gradual over a long distances.
This is a cool weather hike so you must be prepared. Clothing should be layered as well as proper gloves and footwear for winter conditions. The trail could be muddy or snow covered in some areas.
You might want to bring a lumbar or day pack with some water and a light snack.
There is plenty of parking at the site and it is on the right after you travel down a short road into the park.
If the group is still up for more hiking we can proceed to Glacier Park and hike that trail. Please see the previous meet up event for details on that trail. It is not long, but it might be a bit difficult for beginners. http://www.meetup.com/sect-adventurers/events/100437332/

If you have questions or concerns, please post a comment and I will do my best to answer.
The date might change depending on the trail conditions and weather.
