Ascent Trip Report

A friend brought me up to the castle about 5 years ago, but this time it was locked preventing anyone from going to the top. From the castle, I followed the blue blaze trail along the cliff edge to the road and then headed to the radio tower where the high point is just beyond it at the edge of the cliffs. Amazing views all around. I could even see across the sound to Long Island. 3rd of 6 CT high points for the day.
