Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Room for a few cars right at the start of the red blazed trail. More room further down Mt. Washington Rd if no spots are open. Mt. Washington Rd. into CT appeared to have no barricade, but I didn't look that far down it. If you plan to approach from Salisbury, I'd recommend looking up the state of Mt. Washington Rd before heading that way.

Comments
Comments: The trail, at least as far as Frissell South Slope, was mostly dry with a few areas of minor mud. Quite steep and rocky in places, but a great bang for your buck that gets you a CT 2,000 footer, a MA 2,000 footer, and a U.S. state high point in one 2.5 mile hike.

Thanks to Riley P. for a fun hike, and congrats to him on U.S. State High Point #7!
