Quinnipiac And Regicides Blue Trails – York Mtn. And West Rock Ridge


Sat. Jun 1

About 6 miles

20 Open Spots

Northern West Rock Ridge State Park. We will ascend York Mountain at 680 feet from the east with southward views and High Rock at 650 feet with westward views, on the Quinnipiac Trail. The Quinnipiac Trail is the oldest Blue-blazed Trail, adopted by the CPFA Trails Committee in 1929. We will descend and follow Brooks Rd. to
the Sanford Feeder trail. From the Sanford Feeder, we will follow the abandoned West Rock Ridge road south. The road crosses the Regicides trail, which we will follow north with views to the west and then east. We will do a strenuous ascent of York Mountain, this time from the south, and return to Paradise Ave. Approximately 800’ cumulative elevation gain. Dogs okay. Heavy rain cancels.
