Ascent Trip Report

Visited Mount Hope highest point in Bristol county at 221 feet.
Parked at end of Tower St road. Parked as not to block the private driveway entrance. The nearby research/museum was gated as well.
Upon entering the woods the old road is overgrown but a noticeable path to follow with tree blow-downs along the way. Left the old road and start uphill. Suggest swing further right or south to avoid thick briers near the top. I found the area2 my high ground here: 41.67386,-71.24013. My gps track data appears to confirm my guess. No views but top is slightly open.
