The Sleeping Giant Park Association invites you to a Winter Tree Identification Hike.
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 tree identification books if you have them, and snacks and water if you wish (preferably in a day pack). The hike is expected to last about three hours and involve traveling over uneven, rocky terrain, possibly with a degree of rock scrambling. Hikers should be in good physical condition. Dress for the weather, and wear comfortable, supportive shoes, with good traction.
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. Out of consideration for the other hikers, please leave pets at home.
The Sleeping Giant Park is located on Mt. Carmel Avenue in north Hamden (off Whitney Avenue). The park entrance is directly across the street from Quinnipiac University.
