Ascent Trip ReportWolfgang, Sugar, and I drove out to western MA to bag three country highpoints.
For Round Top Hill we used this address in the GPS:
116 Round Hill Rd Chester, MA 01011 ? 72 ft W
We arrived at the cemetery at 1:00pm and parked. We walk up Round Hill Road about 200ft to where an unmarked road go off to the right. At that point we started up the hill on the west side of the road. There are some steep spots and we made our way up to the top. After about 200 plus feet elevation gain it started to level off and we found ourselves in a nice grassy oak grove. We made our way to the top arriving at 1:29pm. We found 3 BM markers (# 3, the main marker, and #2). We also found a red can with a signin notepad in it. We signed and then put the can back. We took some pictures and relaxed. This is a very beautiful area. It does not have any views, but the grove is not that dense and is easy to walk through. We then made our way back down to the car. We then drove on to West Mountain.
