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.

Did a portion of this (the red blaze mostly), to see the views from the ridge, which were quite long-range and saw a little bit of Lake Wintergreen. A very nice hike.

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.
