New London County High Point Trip Report

Date: July 2001
Author: Dave Covill

Gates Hill is as previously described. No view. Interesting little cemetery, with names and dates spelled incorrectly or at least in conflict with each other. Someone had just been added to the roster there that day or the day before, judging by the dirt and flowers. High spot is around back of the cemetery, in between the 2 buildings by the towers. No signs to indicate that going there is not acceptable. There is a small outcrop, the size of a kitchen table, ~6" high, that leveled to be highest. Roads in the town to the N, Willimantic, from where you head up to here, were confusing.
