March 9 Best hiking trails! by Karen Veronica Hampe
Sleeping giant has some great hiking trails that are treacherous, adventurous, and a great workout while having fun! The view on top of the mountain is excellent. There are also easier/wide hiking trails for familys. You can enjoy fishing at the creeks and small running rivers. There is lots of privacy as well. A great place to spend your day and pack a picnic!
November 24 All Time Favorite CT Park! by Nathan Testerman
This park a great! This park use to be a quarry and many of the old structures from the mining company still stand (follow blue to purple trail). This park has 3 freat features; 1) The stream/waterfall/creek is very peaceful (great during all seasons), the fishing is pretty good, and the swiming is a blast as well. 2) The Tower gives you a view of Long Island Sound, The City of New Haven, and Qin.-University. 3) The blue trail (The hardest trail in the park) will lead you on a winding tail pretty much straight up the face of the old quarry, there are some sections that timid hikers may find themselves crawling. Overall this park has something for everybody; the view, the peacefulness, and the challenge all make for an amazing park!
