102 Chestnut Lane, Hamden, CT – There is parking on the side of the road for 2-3 cars to park off the road. There’s also enough space to park along the side of the road.
6 Banton St, North Haven, CT – This parking area is in a dead-end area directly behind a service station on Rt-15. There’s quite a lot of parking available.
Length/Distance: According the Connecticut Walk book, the route between the trail heads on Chestnut Ln and the beginning of the Quinnipiac Trail was 5.4 miles. According to my GPS tracking program, our route was 5.27 miles.
Summary: We began from Chestnut Lane since it had higher elevation and the hike would be all downhill or flat.
