The hike to Chauncey Peak, located within the park, is just challenging enough to not be impossible, but make it worth putting on your hiking boots. The first half mile is a bit tough, but it is only a half mile and you are are rewarded with sweeping vistas of Southern Connecticut, including Sleeping Giant & New Haven on a clear day. The remain 1.5 miles is a great hike through the woods, with more beautiful views of Crescent Lake. It finishes with a lovely stroll along the sides of the lake, complete with benches to take it all in. If you aren't inclined to climb the peak, the stroll along the lake is a pleasure in and of itself. A great afternoon out.
