Great view of new haven and surrounding areas- can see Long Island on a clear day! Also nice that you can choose to drive up or hike (or bike or run!) to the summit and there are plenty of trails that branch out around the park

Nice geocache at the top where the monument is and a nice letter box on a sister peak.

I love running at East Rock. The trails are easy on my knees and sometimes I run on the access road because it isn't as steep going up.
