|Neat and large parking lot, I liked the trees.|
|The park was just across the street from Quinnipiac university which was interesting.|
|The views were mostly panoramic, but...|
|This view was by far the most spectacular (I think "The Giant's Head")|
|This was a rather difficult part of the trail.|
|This steep section was perhaps the most fun.|
After the first amazing climb, first mile or so the hike was only mediocre. The trail became much more boring and standard after that. It was a slight climb to the tower, but the grades were so minimal that it didn't really feel like. I eventually reached the tower which wasn't much of a climb to get to. The older tower was neat to see and walk around in, but some annoying people were just sitting in the path of the lookout so I was unable to see the full views. I got pretty close to the top and was able to catch some of the views, but those views were far inferior to the ones I got on top of the cliff.
|The best views came on top of these cliffs.|
I got out quickly as many more people were coming. I ended up taking the tower trail because it was the most direct/easy and I was short on time. It was a pretty boring trail- nearly flat (very, very gradual incline), wide and manicured. There were also a ton of people on it. I was maybe two on the blue trail but maybe north of 50 on this one (just an estimate, I really have no idea). I got down pretty quickly and got out there.

I made a video with lots of commentary, posted below so if you have time check that out.
