Hampshire County Highpoint Trip Report

West Mtn

I followed previous reports the to the parking area on 116 on the west end of Plainfield Pond. I struck out due south and aimed for the well-defined ridge in the topo. I easily found the ridge, as well as the Peck Lumber sign that Fred Lobdell had mentioned in his report. I found both reference marks on the summit but could not locate BM Bond, despite Dave Covill's directions that it was 7 feet southeast of the highest rocks. This is an extremely easy fall bushwhack that took about 20 minutes up and 15 down.
