Comments
Comments: Round Mountain, Mt Frissell, Mt Frissell Southern slope, NY/CT/MA tri-state marker

Beautiful area for hiking. From the Round Mountain summit the trail can be difficult to follow as it progresses over open rocks. The faded red painted swatches are difficult to spot. Excellent views in all directions.

Plenty of hiking is available in the area including several peaks, the CT state high-point and the NY/CT/MA tri-state boundary marker.
