Stopped by on our way to Maine.
In the area for continuing ed at Yale. Beautiful drive. Thanks to the owners for not shooting at me.
It was a beautiful day out so took a road trip to visit this highpoint. It was a short walk from the trail head.
It was fun. Glad there wasn't any snow or ice.
First time here. The map near Rt. 101 fell over and I almost missed the highpoint; first going to one of the two USGS markers then back to the road. Once back at the road I saw the sign in the grass, realized my error and made the LONG hike back to the real high point. :)
Took a side trip here on the way to Cape Cod with my son. Thanks to the owner's for allowing us on the property.
Short and cute, like Dy.
Nice little stop to kick off my New England trip.
Trying to get my 4yo daughter into hiking. We did a fun one in north central Mass. last year, figured I'd notch a quick HP that could be her first - the brief walk to Jerimoth Hill. Quick and easy, nice ride thru R.I. and Conn. back up to Worcester, MA.
Bob, Broc, Domino and I had a hard time finding just exactly what rock was the highest. But we finally located the mailbox!
This was the closest highpoint to my house so I figured it was a good start on my journey to 50! For posterity it was actually my third highpoint, I did two others before I decided that I wanted to climb all 50 states!!
My wife and I stopped here on our way from a wedding in Newport RI to visit family in Simsbury CT. We spent more time talking to another couple on the trail than we actually did hiking. HP33
Stopped by on way to NH (a visit to Mt Washington...)... Still haven't decided which summit was more difficult. ;-)
My first highpoint back in 2007. This is about a mile from my parents where i grew up so a suitable way to start.
This isn't a Class 5 climb. Nice day with fall colors in the trees.
Easy to find. The short trail is very well marked by the high pointers club. They have done a really nice job on this high point.
Right up there with Mississippi as being one of the non-celebrated highppints. Just a concrete stump on a gentle rise on the earth
We ascended the treacherous north face of the massif, without the aid of artificial oxygen. Picked off #16 on a sunny, warm day on the way back from a college graduation weekend in Boston. Scenic area!
Nice road trip while resting up for the Boston marathon.
