Bristol County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: February 25, 2008
Take US 1 north from I-295 or south from I-495 to the junction with MA 1-A.
Opposite this junction, take Elmwood Street (on the right coming from the south,
left from the north) about 0.8 mile to the entrance to the World War I Memorial
Park, on the right side of the road. Follow the loop road almost all of the way
around to a parking area at the base of the old fire tower. This park
apparently was once a ski area, according to a plaque on a boulder at the
parking lot. My partner Aimee Bouchard and I both concur with previous trip reports.
The four knobs are all easily and quickly "climbed" and, according to my GPS,
the one closest to the fire tower (from the parking lot, it is the knob
"behind" the tower) is the highest. In the field, it seemed fairly obvious to
us that it was highest as well. Total trip time ten minutes maximum.
