Take in the views of New Haven Harbor and Long Island Sound from the top of West Rock. Rising up to 627 feet above mean sea level, West Rock Ridge is one of the most prominent features of the New Haven region. West Rock affords the visitor a spectacular view; it is estimated that one can see approximately 200 square miles from various locations on the ridge with excellent views of New Haven Harbor and Long Island Sound.

A nice, easy walk with different views of the lake. The lake itself is good for fishing (State DEEP stocks it every Spring) and canoeing/kayaking. No motorized boats allowed. Good for dog walking, although they must be on a leash at all times.

Simple trail that is easy for small children and older folks. Nice views and impossible to get lost.

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.

I hike this area all the time, I love it. You can give yourself a good challenge by going up and over back over again and back over again and back over again heck why not do it another time. It's good for every season.

Excellent for an easy hike. Beautiful layout, great sights, close to home and close to school for me. A little rocky in some places, but I don't mind it. Always going to go back no matter what.
