Ascent Trip Report

Arrived at TH late at night. Slept on ground next to car.

TH is almost directly opposite the state line marker. Is NOT an old road as in description, just a small pullout. There is a pullout at TH and another directly opposite. I parked here rather than at the AMC spot a half mile down the road.

Met Tom from Cape Cod at outset, another newly minted HighPointer. We hiked together and chatted. =)

Trail is well and frequently marked with red blazes. Some are faded - we got a dozen feet off trail around the Round Mountain summit but easily got back on. Trail is much steeper than I expected!

Continued on to Mount Frissell Summit and Connecticut State Highpoint.
