Very quiet trail in mid January. Delightful ice figures along the frozen Aspetuck and it's small tributaries. Seems almost magical in places. We hiked from the Saugatuck junction north to Huntington State Park, then across the park to the northern parking lot where we left a car. Our GPS showed a total of 8.4 miles and just over a thousand feet of vertical gain. Most of the hiking was easy with some slightly steeper climbs at the end. We head a little confusion crossing roads when continuing trail markers were not visible from the road.
