Ascent Trip Report

During my trail run today, I noticed that the upper gate to the Education Center was open, so I jogged a minute or so up to the summit, stepped on the benchmark, and jogged back out the gate. I got lucky - I have been there five or six times and never saw the gate open before. The summit area is fenced in and has barbed wire in places. The actual highest point is only a couple feet higher than the highest point outside the fence, so it is the peakbagger's choice whether to log it or not if you can't actually get to the benchmark. The land at the summit is a sort of function space used by the Blue Hills Trailside Museum for overnight use as well as for their summer camp programming. Call the Trailside Museum or check with the Mass Audubon Society for information about access, but don't get your hopes up.
