Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: On a stupidly nice April day like today, you're probably going to have to park toward the bottom of the summit drive, possibly even roadside on CT route 125. Cars for about a 1/4 mile down either side of the road. Popular place, I take it...

Comments: Bone dry trail the whole way. The trails were also very well maintained and groomed and pleasant to walk. Incredibly crowded, but glad to see people getting outside on such a nice day. Highs in the high 60s/low 70s, nice breeze, and sunny skies made for summer-like hiking weather. Stark contrast to when I got back to NH, where it was 45 and cloudy, a few hours later.
