Once you get off the road, it's not too shabby. It's not too challenging though, I wouldn't say moderate, but it will get your HR up!

Went on a chilly, wet, April day. The giant steps were a good workout but a bit slippery. Beautiful view of New Haven.

Views are amazing though you basically hike up along the road the whole time, when I go for a hike I like to be out in the wilderness not seeing a bunch of cars

Just came back from hiking the regicide trail, my favorite in New Haven. Started at the Westville feeder trail. A great workout if done complete and back to where you started, about 14.2 miles according to my gps, 5hrs 45 min, with some short breaks thrown in. Saw a summer camp outing at Judges Cave. Looked like 10 to 12 year olds They hiked up there, impressed, the future hikers of tomorrow. Other than them, saw no one else the entire length

The Westville Feeder is just a quick out & back that you can easily fit into a morning or afternoon. As an add-on to this feeder trail, I recommend continuing onto the Regicides Trail which leads you up a short ways to Judges Cave where Edward Whalley and William Goffe hid out in the 1660s trying to evade retribution from Charles II whose father (King Charles I) they had sentenced to death in the 1640s.

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.

Heavy traffic, beautiful views lots of wildlife
