Regicides Blue Blazed Hiking Trail

Birches over Wilbur Cross -  Sharat Ganapati

It's hard to miss West Rock State Park in New Haven. You drive under it on Route 15. Above the tunnel is a monumental traprock ridge. Starting there, at Judge's Cave, is the Regicides Trail. It travels along the ridge till it meets with the third section of the Quinnipiac Trail. Along the way you are treated to panoramic views of Long Island Sound and the forested landscape of coastal Connecticut. The Sanford Feeder Trail leads from a good parking spot along an abandoned road and meets with the Regicides shortly before its termination at the Quinnipiac. A number of other blazed trails cross the Regicides in West Rock State Park. There is a gate and a fee for parking at West Rock Park in season.
