Ascent Trip ReportCame in from trailhead on West Brook Rd. Had to cross West Brook close to start of trail which was a bit precarious balancing over large logs. Steep climb up to Manaticut Point with great views. Weather is starting to get hotter so my progress is much slower (and more sweatty) than earlier in the season. Mountain Laurel has peaked already. Then followed the Hewitt Butler trail west and then north to the Long Hill summit. Some good views west at the peak. Continued and then looped back on Overlook Trail to Overlook Rock and then Orange Trail to Lake Sonoma (this stretch was quite scenic). Finally connected to a yellow trail which brought me back to Hewitt Butler. Picked up quite a few dog ticks, which I was still discovering the following day. Amazing the places they find to hide:)
