Winter Tree Identification Hike


The Sleeping Giant Park Association invites you to join in on their Winter Tree Identification Hike on Sunday, Feb. 9. Bring your sweetheart along to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Meet at the bulletin board by the kiosk near the park entrance at 1:30 p.m. Bring snacks and water if you wish. The hike is expected to last about three hours and involve traveling over uneven, rocky terrain, possibly with a degree of rock scrambling. The hike is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is not necessary; however, minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult and have signed permission of a parent or legal guardian. Dogs are not permitted on the hike.

The Sleeping Giant Park is located on Mt. Carmel Avenue in north Hamden (off Whitney Avenue). For information, visit www.sgpa.org. Inquiries can be directed to the SGPA Hiking Committee at hike_the_giant@yahoo.com.
