Connecticut, East of River,


Registration is required for this activity.

Registration opens May 20, 2021


A CFPA Trails Day hike of around 2-3 miles with views from Lookout Mountain using a mix of trails. Steepish climb at beginning but we will take more gradual trail when we are about halfway up. Once we are at top, average ups and downs from then on. Meet at 10:30 am at Spring Street entrance to preserve. Dogs welcome. Rain cancels. Lunch at Shady Glen afterwards if there is interest. Signing up on AMC website should also register with CFPA (both are requiring online registration). At the time this is being posted (March) hike is governed by AMC limit of 10 because it is lower than CFPA limit. CFPA is not opening up registration until May 20. CFPA also wants hikers to wear masks for entire hike. (Since it looks like we will mostly be vaccinated by June, I will try to make changes if either CFPA or AMC loosen any protocols before then.) From I-384 EB, take Exit 4, turn right onto Wyllis St (which basically becomes Spring St), follow .2 miles to a narrow bridge. There is a relatively small parking lot on other side of bridge and some on-street parking; there is also a parking lot on right just before bridge. From I-384 WB, go right at end of ramp on Highland St, proceed to traffic light (Highland Park Market is on the corner) and turn right onto Wyllis St, proceed as described above.
