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

Scenic hike and beautiful views from the top at the tower!!! Great photo opp!

Amazing view at the top, does get a little muddy along the trail if it has rained.

Went up to the Tower and a loop through the blue/orange/red/green/white trails. Leaves aren’t changed yet, so if you’re looking for colors wait a week or two more. Be careful of the fallen leaves obscuring the trail. Keep an eye out for markers if you’re not using AllTrails and GPS.

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.
