“Enhancing Connecticut's Remarkable Skyline”

Two miles of mountaintop resembling a sleeping giant give this park its name, and make it a distinguishing feature on Connecticut's skyline. The Sleeping Giant Park Association (SGPA) was formed in 1924 to acquire land on and around the series of ridges in Mount Carmel, Connecticut known as the Sleeping Giant for use as a state park. SGPA is an all-volunteer organization whose mission is to protect and enlarge Sleeping Giant State Park. SGPA maintains over thirty miles of trails in the park, sponsors over 15 guided hikes each year, acquires land to add to the park, publishes the Giant News, a newsletter about the Giant, prints and distributes trail maps and maintains a self-guided nature trail with printed guide.

Beautiful park but FYI it is currently closed due to the tornado that hit this area. It’s projected to open again in the fall of 2018.

Nice stop. Well maintained trail up to the tower. It took my children a little over an hour to hike to the top & back (7 & 4 y/o). Outhouse bathrooms & garbage available.
