Ascent Trip Report

This Peak is on the Massachusetts P600 list with 600 feet of prominence. There are 22 peaks on this list.

This peak climb is entirely on road or unmaintained trail.

I climbed this peak from the West side, starting off in New York. The peak itself straddles the MA/NY border.

From Hwy 22, off of the Mass Pike, travel southeast, turn left onto East Hill Road. At .3 mile from the turnoff, turn left gain on another gravel road, and then go a distance of 1.2 miles from that turnoff to find an unmarked turnoff. There were 3 cars there on the day I was there. There is a locked yellow gate, and then a gravel road that leads toward the summit.

INSECT REPORT: No ticks found, no mosquitoes, and very few deerflies.

After a while, you will approach the summit. The road turns into a single track trail through a wonderful summit plateau filled with blueberries and young birch trees. The summit itself is found in a copse, about 500 horizontal feet from where you leave the gravel road.

I found the summit survey benchmark; in good condition, dating back to 1939.

On the way down, I met a couple carrying buckets to pick the abundant blueberries. Next time, I will bring one as well.

A nice, pleasant, short hike.
