There were a couple of parts of the trail where I had to use my hands. I thought that I might not find the HP, but I just kept doing and I eventually found it. The trail is not well marked past the summit.
Climbed on a 96 degree CT day, which was fairly brutal. Somehow I brought Texas weather with me. Pretty place though, view from the High Point reminded me a little of Magazine Mountain in Arkansas. The trail was a little steeper than I had imagined too.
Took the standard route coming over Round Mountain. Very pleasant hike with nice views, and I was lucky enough to enjoy both Round and Frissell in complete solitude.
Bob, Broc, Domino and I made it to the top, swimming part of the way. Fun to see the marker designating three states. Hiked past a beautiful bird nest resting quietly in the bushes.
This is my home state so I was very excited to climb this highpoint, as everyone is aware, the actual marker can be a little tricky to locate, but my buddy and I finally did. Nice views of Bear Mountain, which some people think is the state highpoint but it's not.
On a cold but sunny day, I scrambled over the snow covered rocks of Round Mountain and Mount Frissell to reach the Connecticut highpoint. I saw no one and the only other tracks in the snow were those of a dog, or maybe a coyote. HP32
Third highpoint, fun hike, tough to find HP since its not at summit. first little dabble at scrambling
First state high point! All of the wet leaves covering the rocks made the climb a little treacherous, but a nice, short hike regardless.
State High Point number 3. Really short hike, two very steep sections, which were fun with the exception of the wet leaves. Those weren't so cool. A little hard to find the exact trail.. just go slow and find the red blazes on the opposite side of the AMC parking lot. very short hike though! literally took two hours round trip, and i took my sweet time.
I hiked the standard trail from the CT/MA border to the east. Rocks were slick with rain and wet leaves.
Was very surprised with the amount of cars at the trail head, was hard to find a place to park. Expected it to be much harder to located the trail head then it was, directions are quite good. Really enjoyed the steep sections. Overall great hike.
Lots of ice and wind when we climbed it but strangely warm when we found the USGS marker
Enjoyed finding this little gem on a foggy morning. The steep, rocky portions of the trail were quite challenging on the way down. It was wet and slippery and made me realize I need to invest in some new hiking shoes ;-) Only wiped out once!
Rather enjoyable hike. Adventurous hike. One of the best hp's so far. Grateful for the spring water near mt Riga
Easy hike, a little rain and snow going on at the top, but no problems, trail is marked w red paint every couple feet, impossible to lose your way, AMC parking lot and state line marker are right in the open along the road, no prblems there either
Trailhead at 1715, summit and highpoint by 1800. Pelted with snow/hail. Trailhead was a bit difficult to find...
Started from the AMC Parking lot off Mount Washington Road. This was a nice hike, I really enjoyed the scrambling before the top. view was pretty fantastic considering it was a rainy weekend.
I hate driving on gravel so the journey in bummed me out. The hike was short and very awesome!!!! I had a blast. awesome views
Long drive to get there, fun lil climb. We got Round, Frissell, and Brace. Enjoyed finally highpointing my home state of CT, and seeing the Tri-State marker.
Hiked over Round Mtn, Frissell and then to the TriState marker and over to Bear Mtn in CT. Humid and hazy, but nice views from Round and Bear.
