The biggest problem with this one was that I was getting tired. That and the fact that CT, in order to really confuse people, has put East Hampton well to the west of Hampton. Really. It's that quaint New England sense of humor thing.

The access road is between mailboxes 85 and 85 and while overgrown is not gated or cabled. Previous directions will get you there. However, when the GPS says you are about 90 yards from the HP, the road will go away from where you want and you might be tempted to bushwhack. Avoid temptation in this case. The road will curve back around when you are 140-150 yards from the HP and go right to where you need to go with a lot less effort. A half hour round trip is probably about right.
