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.
Ascended with my husband, who carried our adorable, ancient dog on his front. It was a beautiful day and a lovely, if quick, hike.
Based on the steepness of a couple sections of the trail, I don't recommend it in wet weather. It was harder on my non-hiker husband than he expected.
It was my 12th highpoint, his 6th, and our pup's 3rd.
Great views from the top and a very warm day.
This was my brother's and my first high point. We regretted that we didn't bring bug spray along with us, but it was a pretty easy hike and we had some really great views since it was such a beautiful day.
My seventh state highpoint, and a very enjoyable hike!
The one that started it all. Hiked up in beautiful, loved the scrambling, hiked out to the tri-state marker. I'm planning to take my Dad there later this month-I want to get him into highpointing, too, and this is a great start!
Vanessa and I, toward the end of the second year of our highpoint quest, hiked to the highpoint from the Connecticut side, and did not actually go to the Massachusetts summit of Frissell, only to the marker at the state line.
Climbed it on snowshoes with my brother Alan, a resident of Connecticut
But I did, glad I did!
This was my 10th highpoint and my dad's 3rd. We kept second guessing ourselves, but by keeping on the red trail we found it! A good hike all around!
My wife and I did this highpoint after doing Rhode Island's highpoint. This was definately the more exciting of the two. Unfortunately, there was so much fog that there were no views and it decided to rain a bit. It was some great scrambling however. Made it down just before dark.
Great hike for kids - just enough to make it challenging for 10 and under. Hike was less than 45 minutes though so make sure you have other things to do if you head out there.
Edit: Doh! Missed it the first time, due to heavy clouds/rain and poor guidebook descriptions.
Took us longer to find the right trailhead than to hike this. We missed the large state line marker as we were looking for a sign on the other side of the road, not a large concrete post on the left side of the road (if you are driving in). Still, an enjoyable hike up the rocks in the rain and wind. Now views though. Tagged both the state highpoint and the summit.
Edit-The above entry, from 9/26/08, is incorrect. Realized on 10/2/10 when we did this, Frissell and Brace that we only tagged Round Mountain in 2008. Since the views were nil, we never realized we were not on Frissell. So, on 10/2/10, after realizing this on a beautiful day, we went over, tagged the high point, then Brace, then on the way back, the true summit of Frissell (in MA) which is just about 10 yards to the right when you come over from Round. There is a summit register there (looks like an old mailbox on a tree nearby a cairn) too. Nice views of Riga Lake from the highpoint.
Great views from up there. Wife and I were a little freaked out driving on that gravel road for like 12 total miles or so seeing all those no trespassing signs. Still, I won't forget the view up there on a crisp September afternoon.
Approximate date - I took the Frissell trail west along the CT-MA border to the summit, then DOWN to the highpoint (that sounds so strange). Then I went to the tri-state point before heading back.
