Event Description: 

Join us on a family friendly walk at Hammonasset Beach State Park. We will walk the Moraine Trail to the mouth of the Hammonasset River, a relatively short walk.  Bring binoculars if you have them, as seals may be on the rocks offshore.  The Moraine Trail features views of Long Island (on a clear day), Long Island Sound and boulders left by glaciers many thousands of years ago.  A detailed history of the park and driving directions may be found on the DEEP website.

If you are bringing a child not your own, please contact the leader regarding required waiver forms. 

We will meet at the Meigs Point parking area at 2.

This free guided outing is co-sponsored by the CFPA Rambles program of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) and Connecticut Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club (CT AMC).

As program of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, CFPA Rambles are intended to bring people, fun, and the outdoors together. Led by trained CFPA Ramble Guides, these FREE, engaging outings are offered on trails around the state every month throughout the year. Each CFPA Ramble is designed to show the people of Connecticut how easy and enjoyable a ramble can be and to feature the many different outdoor opportunities our state has to offer.

  2. Bring water, snack, and your excitement;
  3. Leave pets at home (unless otherwise noted);
