Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionSmall chossy cliff; it's sandy rock that crumbles and is intermixed with some type of granite. The climbable area is maybe 12 yards or 36 feet across.
Not a day trip but there are a few climbs if you live in the area.
There's a river that runs below the cliff and there are lots of mosquitoes -- bring insect repellant if you don't like getting your blood drank.
The local government is somewhat conservative so please don't cause a ruckus, lest we all get banned.
Getting ThereIf you're using GPS do not put "Twin Brooks Park" because that will take you into the park which is opposite of the cliff. Instead, put in 40 Manor Drive, Trumbull CT.
From 95: exit 27a, stay left onto Rt 25N ...
From 15: exit 49N (if going N) to 25N (towards Danbury) or exit 49 (if going S)...
To Exit 9, left at light, 2nd left onto Laurel, right onto Gregory, left onto Manor Dr. Park in front of telephone pole that faces Gregory, as there are No Parking signs closer to the trail.
Follow paved trail under bridge, left at the park bench, don't go into the boulder field unless you want a very strenuous hike. Instead, follow little trail up hill while bearing right to cliff on right.
All the way to the right of the climbable cliff face there is a little 5.1 or 5.0 about 15' tall which grants access to the top of the cliff.
Be gentle on the trees, please!
