New London County High Point Trip Report

Gates Hill

Author: Denis Hanson

Follow Rt. 289 S out of Willimantic. Follow it through Village Hill and turn left onto Bender Road. This happens on a downhill. Follow Bender Rd until Gates Rd branches left uphill. Follow Gates Rd to Gates Hill where you'll see a cemetery and radio towers. Turn into a recently bulldozed area to the left of the cemetery. New cell towers have been added so finding undisturbed ground is difficult. Walk around until you're satisfied you hit all the higher lumps.
