Field Trip – National Trails Day Hike at Naugatuck State Forest – Craig Repasz

June 3, 2017 @ 8:00 am

National Trails Day is celebrated across the country with hikes, trail work, and naturalist events. NHBC will commemorate the day with a birding hike on the oldest hiking trail in CT, the Quinnipiac Trail in the Mt. Sanford Block of Naugatuck SF. We’ll leave from the trail head parking area entrance of Naugatuck SF, 2705 Downs Rd., Hamden, and go through the mountain laurel, beech, birch, hickory, and oak forest; then up and over Mt. Sanford, at an elevation of 890 feet, for beautiful views to the east. Possible birds to be seen are Veery, Wood Thrush, Scarlet Tanager, hawks, and warblers. Wear sturdy shoes or boots, and bring water and snacks. The hiking is a bit strenuous. Meet at 2705 Downs Rd., Hamden.

Leader: Craig Repasz, 203-230-1697 (home), 203-745-6683 (cell) or
