Sleeping Giant State Park

Hamden, CT
Sleeping Giant State Park is so named because the ridge of the mountain resembles a sleeping giant, lying on his back. Makes sense. There are more than 30 miles of trails from the foot of the giant to his head. Many of the trails are rocky, but climbable. At the top of the mountain Mt. Carmel is an observation tower.
