Event Description: 

Join the Happy Homeschool Hikers of Hamden on another adventure. This series is targeted to homeschool students and their families as we explore the Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails.

Wonderful West Rock Ridge State Park offers a variety of hiking options, including the trails around Lake Wintergreen. We'll meet at the trailhead off Main Street near the lake and determine our route at the time depending on the weather and the condition of the trail. Winter hikes often present an interesting view of the landscape and open new discussions about wildlife behavior in the colder weather.

As always, please pack water, snacks and dress appropriately for the conditions.

The hike will be led by CFPA Junior Conservation Ambassadors Liam & Jack, along with their father, Riley Flanagan-Brown, an American Red Cross First Aid/CPR-trained CFPA Ramble Guide.

Parking Information: 
There is a parking lot located off of Main Street.
Inclement Weather: 
We usually hike in the rain and snow, but if we don't we'll let you know.

As a 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);
  4. Wear sturdy shoes; and
  5. Kids, please remember to bring your parents or caregivers.
