Hampden County Highpoint Trip Report

Round Top Hill

Just a couple of updates on this one. In Mike Schwartz's report he has the left turn onto Round Hill Road at 2.4 miles. It should be 2.9 miles. May be a typo, all my other mileage matched his exactly. There is no sign indicating Round Hill Road, there is a mailbox with E H Avery on it and a sign "NOTICE Road closed ahead Nov. 1 - April 15". Blandford Road is undergoing major reconstruction and this may account for the missing road sign.

If approaching along the white blazed trail, there is an orange blazed trail which comes in from the east about a hundred yards below the summit and coincides with the white blazes to the top. This may be another access point if some intrepid county high pointer was to check it out.
