Ascent Trip Report

Continuing the A/T in Connecticut, about 6 miles up from Falls Village on A/T to where I left off on Prospect Mountain a few weeks ago. This is a really nice section of the trail up to the top. The falls on the river are something to see. A lot of history in this area. Trail was in good shape. Mostly packed dirt with very few rocks and almost no climbing. made it up in under three hours. Good markings throughout. There was a bit of a road walk at the beginning and end.
