More trail in Madison

IMG_20180304_114new trail

This picture shows the great progress Hammonasset Park is making with its underground utility project. Instead of grassing over where the turf was disturbed along the service road, the area has been graded and as soon as weather permits will be paved making a real trail connecting the Shoreline Greenway Trail parking lot and the continuation of the trail on the west side of the park entrance road. It is already beautiful and on days when the contractor is not working it is quite usable. It’s worth a trip to see the beautiful bollards.

1st Sat November 4th Bike Ride – Carpe Diem!


What a difference a month makes this time of year,  during last month’s 1st Saturday walk participants were in shorts and November’s 1st Saturday bike ride  required layers to brave the cold morning air.  Despite the cool temps,  13 cyclists joined the round trip bike ride led by SGT’s Kristen D’Souza and Peter Hawes from Guilford’s Harbor to Circle Beach in Madison.  It was a chilly start but once the group got moving, took on the few hills and arrived at Circle Beach, the group couldn’t help but comment on the beautiful views of the Sound and how fortunate we are to live in or visit the CT Shoreline.

The ride was also a birthday celebration kick off for one of the participants and her family.  We are happy they chose to join SGT as part of their celebration,  thank you to all who joined the bike ride!

It was a nice morning ride with views of beautiful fall foliage, Long Island Sound and of course the happiness of celebrating Kellie’s birthday.  Then when the group finished the ride back at the Guilford Harbor, Kellie and some family members jumped off the dock straight into the water!!  Carpe Diem!!


Hammonasset Walkway Closing for Repairs

HammWWstrollerrunner1The trail walkway across the marsh in Hammonasset Park will be closed for repairs intermittently for the next several weeks. The first repair closure will be Thursday October 26 from 10 AM to 12 noon. The gate into the campground will be open during repair sessions so that walkers and bikers can detour.

When repair work is not in progress, the walkway is still usable and should be open most of the time during the coming weeks.


We apologize fro any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Volunteers Wanted!

Trail Maintenance Volunteers Wanted:

East Haven SGT town team is in need of volunteers to help maintain our trail. We meet about 6 times a year for trail cleanup. Typically this involves trash clean up, raking, leaf blowing and weeding. The ideal candidate knows his way around a pair of clippers!

Although we understand that everyone’s time is important to them we hope you will consider volunteering with us. We meet for about 2 hours on a mix of weekend mornings and weekday evenings. If you are interested please reach out to East Haven SGT Chairwoman Barbara Brow. Looking forward to working with you to keep up our wonderful trail!

This is also a great opportunity for high school aged kids to earn community service hours!

Thank you very much!
