Hiking at Sleeping Giant – 6/7 11am

Two miles of mountaintop resembling a large man lying in repose, the “sleeping giant”, is a popular feature of the south central Connecticut skyline. A 1 1/2 mile scenic trail leads to the stone observation tower on the peak of Mt. Carmel which provides an excellent view of Long Island Sound and the New Haven area.

We will be doing Blue, White and Yellow trail. 4.2 miles. This hike is moderate difficulty. There are some steep climbing parts, but the views are absolutely worth it.

Join us! We’ll meet at 10:45am and start hiking promptly at 11am.
