Ascent Trip ReportKestrel Land Trust and the City of Northampton have done a nice job creating this small recreation area on the Westhampton boarder. The old quarry is very cool so pay a visit when walking by. The southern peak is accessible on the main summit trail and is a nice walk through classic New England fields turned to forest. The northern peak is on private property and does not have a trail to the summit. Listofjohns has the northern peak listed but no one has ever claimed to bother to tray and walk to it. It would be a bitch, I considered it but the mountain laurel is very thick. The topo shows 810 feet or so but my GPS new went above 800 but I am finding this with the quadrangle of my area. The coordinates and elevations are not exact. Nice walk and worth the visit.
