Ascent Trip ReportParked across from the Huntersfield State Forest sign. Trail has been reblazed with red DEC markers, a lot of them nailed up over the old aqua blazes. I thought the Long Path used to go over Huntersfield and Ashland Pinnacle but it does not seem to be the case anymore. After hiking the ridge all the way over to the vicinity of the Richmond Mt. summit, it appeared to bypass these two peaks and go north down a woods road between Richmond and the Pinnacle. Not 100% sure of this since I didnt have a Long Path map. I was able to follow the old faded aqua blazes east from the Huntersfield summit without much trouble.
