Great view of new haven and surrounding areas- can see Long Island on a clear day! Also nice that you can choose to drive up or hike (or bike or run!) to the summit and there are plenty of trails that branch out around the park

Nice geocache at the top where the monument is and a nice letter box on a sister peak.

It's a great trail with good views. It's well marked. Give yourself a good challenge by doing the whole thing, out and back.

Ran this trail and made it into a loop by connecting with the red trail in West Rock State Park. The views are pretty spectacular for southern CT. Unfortunately, like many other beautiful locations with easy car access, there is a a fair amount of grafitti and broken glass near the south end. The trails are very well marked. A bit rocky.
