Ascent Trip Report

Drove the dirt road to the end of Hulseman Pond in the dark (ignoring the do not enter sign) and parked at the wide trail convergence a couple hundred feet in. Walked/ran up the trail, which was covered in sheer ice in parts. A coyote was barking and howling near the pond. From the summit, could see the lights of Middletown and Hartford sparkling in the distance. A surprisingly fun little hike and creepy in the dark.
