Ascent Trip Report

I believe this was my first hike in Connecticut. It was the Pete Noyes' annual memorial hike with the Newington Ski Club. It was a lot of fun. It was a short, easy hike, but it gave great views along the ridge line and from the summit. The Hueblein Tower was closed (it's open through October), so I hope to hike this again some day when the tower is open. There was a large turnout for the hike and tailgating party afterwards.
