High Point

A short, but very special Connecticut hike featuring a terminal moraine bolder spill. Here, the Wisconsin glacier was melting as fast as it was advancing further north, delivering a steady deposit of fresh boulders over a period of geological time (long). It's impressive. The upper trail is challenging with some clambering and some short leaps between boulders. The middle trail will allow one to get a good look at this impressive display of nature without the physical challenge.
