Please know that this event is all levels-beginners welcome. And yes, it is a start time of 9:00 AM.

This morning hike is in Meridan at Giuffrida Park. We are going on a 3ish mile hike, climbing to the top of Chauncy Peak. We willbe going around the back of Cresent Lake. It is steepclimb then up onto the ridge and then a gradual climb past the quarry. Views from the topare great. We will finish back where we started. The old kick your butt climb out of the parking lot has changed and the new trail is a pleasant descent.

I suggest a small pack with water, snacks, and temperature will dictate what else you need. Cameras are always welcome. I suggest hiking boots. Higher boots with stiff soles have saved me many times. And I love my hiking poles.

READ MY INSTRUCTIONS TO GET THERE. THE ADDRESS ABOVE IS CORRECT BUT GPS WON'T TAKE YOU THERE.

This hike is off of exit 20 on I-91. If from the south, left onto Country Club Rd. From the north, left off highway onto Middle Street then right onto Country Club Follow past Atkins St. and then the road becomes Westfield Rd. When you drive under the conveyor for the quarry, the park will be on your right. This is the road description to get there, really for sure. There will be no bathrooms.

This an adult hike through the woods. Dogs on leashes........NO CHILDREN.
