Ascent Trip Report

Bristol County high point located in the beautiful World War I Memorial Park & Zoo of North Attleborough, MA. A leisurely 5 minute walk up a paved road to the CoHP, which was marked by a fire tower (closed to the public during my visit), and a plaque at the base of a flag pole reading "Sunrise Hill Ski Mountain". The hill presented a picturesque view of the surrounding towns and forest to the east. I reached all four knobs that are considered contenders for the CoHP and agree as others have said on this site that the HP is behind the fire tower. Overall, a forgettable and easily accessed high point, but a nice walk with good scenery and views.
