Ascent of High Peak on 2009-03-27
|Date:||Friday, March 27, 2009|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||1700 ft / 518 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI came up Houghton Hill and Turnpike Road from the opposite side that Ben Lostracco did and as he guessed, There were no issues getting to the height of land via car, even in the little Acura sedan I was driving. Pretty much headed east from the little car spot about 100' north of the HOL, hiking through very open woods. I did pass by a house about 100 vertical feet below the summit. Saw no no trespassing signs, so I skirted the place quietly with my dogs and headed up. Summit is ledgy and deciduous, with minor views due to the leaves not even budding yet. Glissaded back the way I came. Maybe 20 minutes out of the car.
