Lake Wintergreen
Greetings! Please join me for an old school walk up to the ridge and down and around by the lake. This hike is 4 miles and takes 1.5-2 hours, depending on the group. Bring: drinking water. Wear: shoes with treads. Notes: If I am late, please wait for me, and check this page. This park has an outhouse at the beginning of hike, and a lot of good places to hide in the woods. This walk should be fine for most beginners, who will need to brave one big hill at the beginning (we will wait and cheer you on). None of my hikes are the best choice for people who want to move really quickly at the expense of social engagement. I find it rude when people ditch the group, but if you're going to do so, please say something so we don't look for you. Please email with questions well in advance of the hike, or just show up--chances are it will be fine--because I'm not online much these days. Thanks and hope to see you! Sarah

What we're about

Public Group

Meet other local hiking enthusiasts who are not afraid to wake up early on a Saturday and take a walk in the woods, or to spend a Sunday afternoon hanging around outside, instead of on the couch! Explore the beautiful southern Connecticut hills in all seasons, on two-hour, non-competitive, adult hikes. Not for the "extreme" set; nor the extremely lazy. BYO water and snacks for a short sit-down break at half-time, and enjoy the view!
