Ascent Trip Report

There is a small parking area at the base of the hill not far from the Bonne Bay Marine Station. There are a couple of loop trail options connected by the saddle trail. About 3 excellent viewpoints at the top which give different perspectives on the Bonne Bay Area. A field of attractive lupines at the base. There was a sign warning about an aggressive moose, but I did not see him. A very worthwhile trail if in Norris Point.
