Join us for a nature walk on the historic Quinnipiac Trail over Rocky Top, the origin of the Connecticut Blue Trail system. After a short, steep climb, the trail levels out through young woodlands to an older forest. The hike will continue to the chimneys that are the remains of cabins owned by Edger Heermance, the father of the Blue Trail System. Wear appropriate footwear as there is some rocky, uneven terrain. Dress for the weather.
