Geocache Description:

Bishop Woods Bird Sanctuary is a hidden gem of a park.   A migratory flyway for many birds.  
 In October 1928, Dr. Louis Bishop (a medical doctor gave up his career to focus on ornithology).  He donated 3 parcels he owned, along with one owned by the estate of his sister, to the City of New Haven. In the transaction he stipulated that "The City will keep this land always as a forest park and bird refuge."

This beautiful park is accessible from two locations.  Parking on Harmac Drive in North Haven, you will cross Foxon Hill Road and get yourself on the trail.  Unfortunately, most of the trails are there due to ATV's.  Some of the trail may be blocked by fallen trees however there will be a new ATV trail just beside it. 
The other location to gain entrance is a short very steep hike behind Bishop Woods School on Quinnipiac Avenue.
Where the cache is located is the highest peak in New Haven County east of the City of New Haven.

If you are interested in learning more about the park, please email lightleaf556 at yahoo.
