Ascent Trip Report

Unofficial trail at end of Preston Avenue parallels I91 on its east to start and is well beaten. Trail crosses power company road well signed with cairn and becomes a wide wood road slabbing southward sideways up to a rivulet dip in the main path. The blue-blazed Mattabbessett Trail northward to Higby Mtn keeps climbing and dipping with another dip and height ninety yards beyond Peakbagger's coordinates maybe showing more height. Craig Castle in the Hanging Hills is clearly visible with valley between height and all over below.
