New London County High Point Trip Report
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.
