Where wil we hike?

We will explore the ridges (high ground) of the Pequonnock River Valley. We may explore some of the caves and walk along the ridge line. Near the old Trumbull Reservoir, we will drop down into the valley and hike along the river for a while. North of the reservoir, we will climb back up to the ridge and explore some of the interesting topography of ridges and valleys in the forest and wind our way back to the starting location.

About the Hike

It was a beautiful sunny day and we had a decent turnout of participants of all ages. It was fun with the kids, sensing their eagerness to explore and their exhiliration at the cliff views and rugged rock outcroppings all aound us. It was especially hard pulling them away from the Cliff View and our stop at the river at Turtle Rock. :-)
