DUE TO THE FORECAST FOR SATURDAY, OUR HIKE IS BEING MOVED TO SUNDAY. REMEMBER TO SET YOUR CLOCKS BACK!
November 4, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. join The Rockfall Foundation for a 2.6 mile hike on the Mattabesett and Reservoir Loop Trails in Middletown, CT. Hike around a beautiful reservoir plus a spur to an overlook and Rock Pile Cave. Moderately difficult terrain at a fast pace, with a few steep open rock faces. Must be comfortable with hand-assisted scrambling.
Free. Non-members welcome. Experienced hikers only. No dogs, please. Bring sturdy hiking boots/shoes, snacks and water, and optionally, trekking poles. Steady rain cancels.
Meet at 9:30 a.m. at the dirt lot at the intersection of routes 9, Randolph Rd. (route 155), and Coe Ave. (GPS: 41.534419, -72.617770). We will then carpool to the trailhead a mile away. Note, our return time will entirely depend upon the hiking pace of the group.
From the North: Take Route 9 South to exit 11. Turn right onto CT-155E/Randolph Rd. The dirt carpool lot is 450 feet on your right.
From the South: Take Route 9 North to exit 11. The dirt carpool lot is immediately on your left at the end of the ramp.
