Ascent Trip Report

2.75 mile hike with Pat over Worthley and Benson Hills. Parked at end of Worthley Hill Rd. on paved drive with room for 2 cars on left. Took the left trail despite a sign just to the left of it saying private property. I assume you are allowed to go on that trail since it is the blue trail starting from this site http://www.goffstowntrails.com/ which says to respect private property and stay on marked trails. Very nice trails up Worthley and then into some fairly open woods due to logging all the way up to Benson. It is reminiscent of being out west with the sparse trees and longer views. Poked around the top of Benson looking for views, but did not find any. Then backtracked and took trail west towards the dirt portion of Worthly Hill Rd. Passed an old, small collapsed building and then took the woods road to the power lines. Just after the power lines jumped onto the parallel trail just to the east of the woods road.
