Jon Pantano takes a rest

I took a quick hike on the Quinnipiac Trail this morning which is part of Connecticut’s Blue Blaze Trail System. After hiking on Sleeping Giant yesterday it was nice to be on a trail that had no traffic. We caught a glimpse of another hiker at the trail head but our paths diverged and we never saw him again.

Jon Pantano, a Quinnipiac senior, showed me the path he found behind his house in Hamden and showed me a few notable spots he had stumbled on during previous hikes.

Stay tuned for more in-depth coverage of the Blue Trail System and some new places to check out. Hopefully the weather we’ll be just as nice next weekend so those of you who didn’t get a chance to explore Connecticut this weekend will have another opportunity.
