Hamden’s Town Trails
I decided at some point that I would have a “town trails introduction” page for every town in Connecticut with trails traversing town trails. I have written many of these little intro pages, but I think this is the first one with asterisks.
Hamden is a vexing little town when it comes to this stuff. I won’t burden you with the intricacies of the Regional Water Authority, the local land trust and the two state parks in town… but just merely mention that both East Rock Park and Edgerton Park are New Haven owned and operated properties… much of which are physically in Hamden.
And that’s why they are listed here. Now you know. Go hike.
