SGPA HIKES FOR 2017

The SGPA Hiking Committee has planned the following schedule of hikes for this year. All hikes are open to the public. Unless noted otherwise, all hikes will leave from the bulletin board at the park entrance on Sunday afternoons. The entrance to Sleeping Giant Park is on the north side of Mt. Carmel Avenue in northern Hamden, about 0.5 mile east of Whitney Avenue. Hikers should wear comfortable, sturdy shoes and bring snacks and water, as desired. No pets, please.
The SGPA hiking committee also sponsors the Giant Masters program for SGPA members who hike all the marked trails.


E-mail inquiries about the hikes may be sent to: SGPA Hiking Committee Chairman

NOTE: Sometimes a hike may be cancelled because of the weather. Check here for the status of the next upcoming hike.
