Ascent Trip Report

This was a nice diversion. Instead of taking the normal trail from the car park on the north side of the hill, we followed the old trail to the summit that winds between the monuments. Start at the monument on S Confederate closest to Wright Avenue. Behind that you will see the remains of the old macadam path, now overgrown, that takes you to 3 or 4 more monuments. When you get to the top, don't forget to go past the 20th Maine monument on the way down. Though they are famous for their defense of Little Round Top, they ended up on Round Top after their charge.
