Connecticut State Park Journeys: Hammonasset

Hammonasset is a state park I’ve visited a bunch of times, but mostly to swim at the beach. Recently I went to the state park to experience other parts of it. I drove to the Meig’s Point Nature Center to do some exploring. The nature center was closed unfortunately. Lots of people were camping at the campground and walking the trails, popular activity even for a Monday!

This is a Connecticut state park to have on your list for summer 🙂

Connecticut State Parks Journeys: Devil’s Hopyard

Devil’s Hopyard State Park had been towards the top of my Connecticut State Parks to Still Visit list. I knew there was a bigger waterfall and it did not disappoint. There is parking near the top of the waterfall so you do not have to hike a lot to see it; I chose to park at a different trail head because I wanted to hike a bit first. I was there a total of 40 minutes but stopped a lot along the way to take pictures and admire the rushing waters.

You can park up on Foxtown Rd to get to the falls quick; not handicapped assessable but a short walk down the hill to the bottom of the falls. There are “steps” down.

We had a busy day planned and didn’t hike more. It is a park to hike a little or hike a lot, you choose your adventure 🙂
