This state park, like its sister East Rock Park , offers a spectacular overview of the city of New Haven and its environs. The park is the creation of a more tumultuous time, a ridge of basalt rock forced skyward by volcanic action about 200 million years ago. The 1,500-acre park is located at the apex, where visitors can enjoy miles of hiking trails, picnic areas and a fishing pond. The infamous Judges Cave is located here, where, in 1660, Edward Whalley, John Dixwell and William Goffe eluded capture by royal bounty hunters. The three men had been among the signers of the death warrant against England's King Charles. Opens daily at 8am.
