Hartford County Highpoint Trip Report

north of Hartland Pond (1,398+ ft)

This is an update on Denis Hanson's trip report. The roads one should take to the trailhead have changed slightly:

From the town of West Hartland off of CT-20, take West Rd. Stay right at fork with Old Forge Road (i.e. stay on West Road). Turn left at junction with Dish Mill Road. Shortly this will come to a T-intersection; turn right, and drive the short distance to the dead-end and the dirt parking area on the right. From here, enjoy the hike!

When I arrived here on 7/2 at nearly 9.00 p.m., the darkness and difficulty in reading the street signs made it easy for me to get lost. The street signs are horrendous: white 4x4 posts with the street names written vertically on them. Hard to read, and not obvious.
