Ascent Trip Report

Mountain biked just under two miles ascending the Nipmuc Trail to the start of the whack, after first stashing the bike. An easy 4 tenths whack up to the surprising find at the flat, grassy, widely spaced hard wooded summit, were the unexpected remains of the old wood lookout tower as shown on the 1940s and 50s topo maps, all that remained was the concrete base and some rotting boards on the ground. After the short whack back to the bike it was a fun fast downhill back to Rt.171 on twisty semi-technical single track.
