Ascent Trip ReportThis is a very expensive high point to bag. I took my family to Nantucket for the day. We parked at the Hyannas Steamship Authority terminal. We took the steam boat over the the island. When we landed we took a taxi to the airport to pick up our rental car (it was way to expensive to take your car to the island).
Once we had our car we drove to Sankaty Head and walked along the high cliff wall to the light house. We took pictures and then walked back to car and to the first house along the cliff wall. We found a small door in the wooden fence that allowed access the a grassy area that contained the highpoint. Watch out for Ticks here as our jack-russel sugar got one. We walked over the the highpoint which is right at the cliff edge and the lot corner with the house. There is a very small triangle of fenced in area with small trees in it. We all touched the top and took some pictures. We checked for Ticks before we got in the car. The views from the cliffs are Awesome!
