MERIDEN – The Meriden Land Trust will host its fall hike at Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden Saturday morning.

The hike, led by local naturalist Bob Pagini, will include gradual inclines and occasional rocky terrain.

“It’s nice to get people to know the georgraphy around them,” Meriden Land Trust President Roger Kemp said. “Everyone knows Hubbard Park, but there’s a lot of other (parks)”

The land trust leads hikes in the spring, summer and fall. About a dozen hikers are expected to participate.

“People like to see nature,” Kemp said. “If they go as group, people generally feel more comfortable.”

Hikers should meet at 22 Pearl St. in Meriden at 9 a.m. for a carpool to Sleeping Giant and are advised to bring appropriate footwear, a camera or binoculars, water and a snack.
