Two miles of mountaintop resembling a sleeping giant give this park its name, and make it a distinguishing feature on Connecticut's skyline

Great views and a good hike for anyone looking for a challenge.

beautiful views. would recommend hiking shoes. can do in winter, fall, spring and summer

I've yet to come across another hike that allows for such awesome and ample access to a cliffside scramble. The quarry is certainly the highlight of the blue trail. But the backside of the mountain, facing East, offers some awesome views of New Haven.

The wooded areas on top of the mountain are magical and have their own unique energy which is so inviting and peaceful.

I'm so glad that I live near this wonderful spot.

Usually very very popular on weekends, but the path is easy to follow and great views when you get to the top.
