Ascent Trip Report

My Dad and I parked off the side of the road at the intersection of Emerald Rd. and Opal Dr., and then we started walking on the dirt road that was straight ahead.

Almost right after we started walking, we turned right onto another dirt road, which had big rocks blocking it. The road went up and down a little, passed by a house, and then started the climb.

The road's grade isn't that bad, but it was a little rocky at times. It passed by a State Land boundary sign and an old gate, and then eased up.

There was a downed tree in the middle of the road, which we had to go around. After that, the view opened up, the land got bare, and we knew that we reached the summit.

Rock Rimmon Hill's summit is open and has good views to the Long Pond area. There is the remains of an old fire tower on top, and glass shards littered everywhere. We took a water and food break, I took some pictures and video, and then we explored a little.

We took pictures of ourselves before descending the way we came.
