Ascent Trip Report

Took the Round-The-Mountain Trail off to the right of the parking lot. It has a long decline to start with, and after a couple of left turns, I transferred to the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail, which leads directly to the summit. The day was bright blue and sunny, but extremely humid and the air was full of mosquitoes. At the peak I climbed the 9 flights of steps up the 68 foot Warwick Fire Tower in order to see the vistas that are otherwise blocked by timber. The descent was uneventful (I took the same route down).
