Ascent Trip Report

A very nice pile of rocks on a hillside. This was actually a really nice hike, even though it wasn't truly a peak. It'd probably be a good one for people who are new to hiking.
There wasn't a sign at the trailhead that I noticed, but look for a cool old stone marker at the MA/CT border on the road east of the peak. There's a small parking area across from the marker, and a trail with red blazes leading toward the 'peak'.
