Route: Signal Hill Trail

Debatable as to whether or not this would be considered the highpoint of Signal Hill (there is a knob to the northwest that is higher...access road to it from Steven road is posted). First half of the trail is in open fields - lots of ticks. Trail then ducks into the woods and ascends to the south summit meadow via a grassy wood road. Limited views from the summit toward Vermont.
