Ascent Trip ReportFrom CT-55, about 1 mile E of the NY border or 0.6 mile W of the junction with CT-39, I turned on Evans Hill Rd, which is on the "north" side of CT-55, though it actually heads E. 0.2 mile up Evans Hill Rd, just past a red wood house on the R, is a trailhead for the Herrick Trail, which is a feeder trail for the AT. The trail itself (along with an information board) is on the L side of the road, and on the R side is a pullout with space for two cars, plus a third car that would block a road into the woods. I parked here.
I hiked up the Herrick Trail. After about 5 minutes was a side trail on the R, identified with a sign that said "Amy's Lookout". I figured it was probably a view of the Housatonic River. I passed it up for now, planning to check it out on the return. The main trail climbed through a pass, dropped slightly, and climbed again to join the AT after a total of about 20 minutes. I turned L on the AT, and in less than 5 minutes it topped out near a sign announcing Tenmile Hill with an elevation of 1000'. The actual summit, however, is in the woods on the L side of the trail. The N summit is just a ~60' walk through open forest; the S summit is ~120' farther. The N summit is probably higher.
I checked out Amy's Lookout on the return leg. It's a two minute climb to a saddle, followed by an additional three minutes to the top of a rock outcrop. You can only see one tiny piece of the Housatonic, though it was still worth the 10 minute side trip.
