Ascent Trip Report

I was headed back to Newport from Boston and knew that I had to make the side trip to make it up one of the 50 state high points. It's a quick walk in the woods and kind of boring. The 3 girls in my car didn't know about peakbagging, so I had to fill them in as we drove there and walked along the trail. Hopefully they are now addicted to peakbagging.... Thanks to the owners for maintaining access to the high point for us!

Normally, I choose to hike up the drive-up high points, but there is really no way to do that here and keep the land owners happy. Knowing that many more will follow in my footsteps, we parked along the highway and walked the official trail.

Looking at the register it seems that we were the only group to summit on Easter Sunday.....
