Comments: This is the 1608' Kimball Hill in the Kimball Hill Wildlife Mgt Area in Groton. I realize there is another Kimball Hill west of this one which is a bit higher. Anywho, terrific day to be bothered by bugs and no humans :0 the Around .1mi from parking, we took a right onto another logging road briefly, then followed a VERY old logging road/skidder road to the height-of-land south of the summit. From there just bushwhacked up a very slippery and steep summit cone. No water making leaves slippery - they just were super dry and slippery. Summit had no real views. Literally slid down the dry leaves to get off the summit cone slightly to west of our ascent, intersecting some logging roads and coming out on the main logging road/sno-mo trail. Explored some cellar holes - pretty sure we found the filled-in well. Decided we'd come back in the fall with fewer leaves and explore other cellar holes. Super neat area. Almost 800' elev gain total. Fun!
