New Haven Hikers' Walk at Chatfield Hollow

Hi folks! Let's brighten up a stark early-winter day as we walk and talk with a group of friendly folks whose mission is the same as our own -- get some fine exercise in good company in the great outdoors! 

WHEN AND WHERE: This Meetup will take place at Chatfield Hollow State Park, which is a state park located in Killingworth, CT. As usual, please plan to arrive five minutes early.

Members meet at the gate just before the shack, converging at 9:55 or 10:00, and head out at five after.

DIRECTIONS: From I-95: take Exit 63, and follow Route 81 north to Route 80 west. Drive about 1.2 miles west on Route 80 and look for park entrance on your right (it comes up quick). Google map / Directions to park

$1-2 DONATION: Donations cover the annual cost of the website and ensure that the group remains active year-round. Please note that members who arrive without donations for any reason have always been welcomed with warmth and without question.

    Sarah- you probably don't know how much you enrich our lives by having these walks, but I want to say thank you from all of us- for all that you do. People know us by the kind acts we do for others. I wish the happiest of holidays to you and everyone else kind enough to brighten our walks together.

    Rick, per our conversation about Mt. Pisgah, if you (or anyone) want to check it out, let me know, although winter is not the most favorable time for that little gem.

    Thanks to everyone for making my first group hike and first meetup so enjoyable! The level was perfect for me, but I confess that I took a nap afterwards. :-) I also have to admit that had it been on Sunday I would probably have been too cold for me. But Saturday's weather was perfect. :-)

    Hey Johanna dress warm in layers. Bring water n a light snack if you want. It's a large group so we move at a regular pace.

    Hi Johanna,
    This will be my second hike with this group. Some people carry a backpack, its up to you. I have no idea how long this hike will be either, so we're winging it! Good shoes are in order for sure, on this wet morning. Having my coffee now, see you there!

  • Johanna E.

    Its kind of my first hike, I've done slow walks and tours and blocks downtown - and don't know how many miles, but I want to do this. I remember going there with my family as a child and want to see it again. I really don't know how to prepare for a hike. I just realized I should bring water! so you can see that I am quite clueless as to what to take/wear to a hike (should I bring a backpack filled with stuff I think I might need) so this is hit or miss for me. My big adventure!

    Am hoping to make this hike, but it'll be tricky due to a time-conflict. I live nearby, so might possibly cross paths with you midway or late in the hike...(?)
