I decided to make a quick stop at Prospect hill in Westminster as it was pretty much on my way from Soapstone hill (earlier in the morn) and Blood hill (my final goal of the day). This was pretty easy although the park looked like it might sometimes be gated. I approached from Route 140 and drove to the top and kicked around a bit to try and find the highest ground.

From Prospect hill in Westminster I drove up Route 140 to Route 101 to Route 119. Albee had told me that there was a trailhead off of the East side of the hill so I headed for that side. From 119 I took a right onto Erickson road at the Ashby Diner. Erickson forks then the next right takes you to the trailhead. There is a sign at the intersection noting that the trailhead and parking is 600’ up the road. I parked and went for my final run of the day. The 505’ to the top was very gentle and I was on top in 10:45. I took some pictures then ran down in 9:35. I had thoughts of trying to whack over to Spring hill but I was pretty tired from the previous peaks and 15+ miles of running. All in all a fun day!
