Announcing a new Meetup for New Haven Walks in the Woods!

What: New Haven Hikers' Sunday Afternoon Walk at West Rock (Lake Wintergreen)

When: Sunday, August 1,[masked]:00 PM

Where: West Rock Ridge State Park
Parking Lot is on Main Street
Hamden, CT 06514

Hi folks! Hope you can join us for a short hike through the woods in great company.

BRING WATER, there is no place to fill up or obtain water anywhere in the park, I recommend 2 liters or more.

LOCATION: This Meetup will take place at West Rock, which is a Connecticut State Park located in New Haven and Hamden. There are various entrances to the park, but we will be parking at Lake Wintergreen.

WHEN AND WHERE: Meet at the Lake Wintergreen entrance, which is located on Main Street, between 12:55 and 1:00, and we'll start walking by five after one. We will hike for about 2 hours.

WEAR: Hiking or other sturdy shoes with treads.

COST: Suggested donation of 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.

DIRECTIONS: 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.

FROM 15 north or south bound (WILBUR CROSS PKWY): Turn RIGHT onto Dixwell Ave. Turn RIGHT onto BENHAM STREET, at end of Benham street turn LEFT onto MAIN ST. The lake Wintergreen parking lot is on the right hand side of the street at the point where main street forms a sharp 90 degree left turn.

PARKING NOTE: There is no fee for parking in the lot.
