Middlesex County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: April 27, 2008
This was my third HP of the day and it was still only just short of 9:00 AM.
I had no trouble following the directions as I came from Middlesex County.
I parked at the tower as the other trip reports suggest.
The road mentioned in Dan Case's report is actually Abbey (not Abbott).
The trail still has a chain across it but I never saw a "no trespassing" sign.
I never saw the benchmark but the stone/steel footings left little doubt about
where I was. I decided to check out the trail around Hulseman Pond to see if
parking would be easier at that end.
The trail was easy to follow, it is on the topo. Ignore the other smaller
trails which go off in other directions. The trailhead doesn't really have any
parking spots and it appears that the homeowner had placed a "Do Not Enter" sign
at the entrance. It is not posted for trespassing and the sign is of the
variety seen on a one-way street. Total time to do a loop was 21 minutes
