My third time here. The first time, in 1995, I was chased off by the maniac who used to live there. The second time, in 1998, we made a stealth raid on the "summit" which was obscured by piles of tree limbs and brush. This time, my whole familiy had a nice stroll to the open summit and were only harrassed by swarms of flies.
My eighth state highpoint. Not much of a hike but one step closer. The sandy parking lot mentioned is lined by large boulders, hope this helps.
The trees were pretty, but I can't get over the fact that this hill is barely in the state. I've only been to one place in Rhode Island, and THIS was it. Hmmm.
My sister-in-law's first HP, my wife's 3rd.
Very easy, though I find it odd that the USGS made a mistake when placing that first marker midway down the trail. Highpoint #9!
Long Drive from Baltimore. We stayed the night about 30 minutes southwest of the highpoint (due to the restricted hours) and got up early to reach it. Kind of a pretty area. Definately better than Deleware's HP.
Nice run to the summit. Took three or four quick shots then left.
I saw you signed the log the day after I got there. I like that the property owners have allowed everyone to take that little trail to the HP. # 10 for me.
Drove over from Hartford during a business trip. The entire drive is very scenic and woodsy. This is my 24th state highpoint.
Thanks to the owners and those who marked it...nicely done.
The Highpointers Club did an excellent job working together with the property owners to create such an enjoyable summit trail and helping keep this HP accessible to the public.
This was the fifth of seven HPs (plus Washington, D.C.) I would reach in two days' time. HP #29 for me.
After getting my butt kicked by Katahdin, I barely had the energy to make it up this beast. I dug down deep inside of myself, and somehow, found the courage and stamina to push on, and made it to the top.
Very nicely maintained gravel path. A cloudy day that threatened rain, but I was able to avoid getting wet.
Ascended with my brother and father on the way back from Baxter State Park in Maine.
Nice scenery. Visited the true highpoint, about five minutes into the woods. HP #5 for the Mrs., #7 for me.
Nice little path to the high point. I was a little confused by the other markers along the way. I was pleased that the current owners opened it up. High point #2.
GLAD THE NEW OWNERS ARE MORE ACCEPTING OF HIGHPOINTERS
While in Boston for work, pickup as many state HPs as possible!
I went on one of the open dates. I didn't see any times when the summit was open so I strolled in at about 7 am. It must've been too early because a guy followed me in his car when I left. I pulled over to see what he had to say to me, but he just kept going with a mean scowl on his face.
Drove to this State Highpoint. Was a long drive from Mount Greylock to bag this one. Strange hobby I have. HP #27.
