1st of 7 county high points this weekend. Went up early to avoid the expected storms the next day. Well worth it;
July 4th roadtrip to check off Massachusetts and Connecticut highpoints. Fun couple of days!
Sunny day hiking through low trees and shrubs to summit.
Cheshire Harbor trail. 2:27 round trip time. Very wet and sloppy then frozen and slippery last .75 or so. Wind was strong and cold at the top! On to Vermont for hopefully a fourth on this trip before flying home. Very pretty part of the country.
Drove to the summit and walked around to view vistas in all directions. Lovely spot. Hope to return to actually hike up to it sometime this fall.
Did this one with +/-200 other highpointer club members (some drove & some hiked & 1 biked) in conjunction with the 31st annual highpointer convention.
Great day. Mostly clear and about 60 degrees at the top. I loved the small lake and cabin about a half mile from the top. At the top you could see forever.
Bagged the peak with a friend. I just love this peak,
Absolutely beautiful day for a little hike. Still icy near the top, and at the bottom it was extremely muddy. High point 2/50
The final summit of my three-high-point day (after NJ in the morning and CT in the early afternoon). The visitor center on Rockwell Rd. was closed when I got there (seriously, what kind of park office closes at 5 pm in the summer?), so rather than hike without a map I took the lazy way up and drove to the top. The summit was a bit disappointing: the crowds were out in full force and the tower was closed for repairs, but at least the view was nice.
...But nice views anyway.
The path was pretty steep, so it was a good warmup for harder hikes, but the views weren't what I had hoped. Views to the East and South were blocked by trees.
An awesome, 16-mile hike to start the summer. Hiked to the summit but also to some waterfalls on the other side of the mountain. Well worth it!
This was our first high point before we knew we were highpointers not sure of the exact date it was in October of 2011 we used e thunder bolt trail great trail not hard at all this trail leads you to the AT it was so cool to walk a little of the AT to the summit of graylock the tower was also cool with great views we had a good day and great lunch at the top in the lodge
A backwards summit, of sorts. Not sure what the weather was going to do - looked foggy and rainy so I drove to the top. The weather cleared up so I then hiked down the AT to Notch Road/Wilbur's clearing and then back up to the War Memorial. Looks to be about 6+ miles round trip.
Drove to the top. The last of the 6 New England State HPs on my solo roadtrip.
I drove up with my girlfriend on the way to Vermont. The view was beautiful! The summit tower is closed through the 2016 season for renovations. Otherwise, we had a great time.
A warm day for skiing! We skinned up, hung out at the summit to eat and drink then skied down on soft mushy snow. Coverage was good though.
This tour was with Nate and Dana.
Had a solo dance party at the top!
