  • Great view of the city, but it took me like 20 minutes to reach the top. Prepare to walk the whole way.

  • East Rock Park has a nice view in all seasons! They have a parking lot. You can park and go to the top. It is possible to see all of New Haven and also see West Rock Park from there. There are some trails to do if you don't want to follow the road.
  • Been here multiple times over time & every time I go here it’s definitely an interesting trip to go up/down the road because it’s a 1 way street mainly & narrow so use caution when traveling there. The layout wraps around the mountain to the top & back to the bottom again. Once you get to the top there’s limited parking that overlooks the country & definitely a sight to see. Great place to go hiking, walking or even bring the family for a picnic.
