| Elevation:||374 ft / 113 m|
Ascent Trip ReportWent for a run from my new home in Westboro and I decided to run up the Carlington Hill. It isn't huge or imposing, but it sticks out in this flat city like a sore thumb. There were two "Trails" up the slope of the hill that I used as a circle route to run up and down the hill a few times. |
Once I was sufficiently beaten up by the constant running up and down, I decided to slip to the top of the hill into the reservoir and poke around. The high point of the hill is just along the northeast path that leads to what used to be a sundial.
All in all, pretty neat views of the city, the clouds were doing strange things since it had been raining all day and the sun was in a dogfight to peak through them.
I have uploaded the GPS for this trip below (mainly as a test) I was using my Strava App and turned it off once I started walking to the actual high point to save my running metrics.
I will leave it on next time I head that way to identify the peak
