Yellow Blaze, No Blaze (Unmarked)

It was a nice, easy hike with great views west from the cliff ledges. A little chilly but not unexpected this time of year. Lots of noise coming from the CT State Police firing range. Kind of crowded; not exactly a place to find solitude but it's a decent local spot to find scenic views.
