Trails.com has issued its list of most popular (and presumably most downloaded) trails. The downloaded trails are heavily weighted to the Northeast and the New York City metro area in particular with Breakneck Ridge Trail being #1. You might recall my last reporting about being escorted at gunpoint in January 2003 after missing the trailhead and wandering too close to New York City’s water supply tunnel which crosses the Hudson from the Catskills. So, it probably is a good idea to have a map even if the Metro North train actually drops you off at the trailhead (the only trail in the NYC metro area with such specific connections).

Make Sure You Visit the Correct Connecticut Highpoint (hint: if you sign the summit log you’re not there!)
A lot of people who climb the most popular route by Round Top Mountain route from the parking lot on the Massachusetts-Connecticut line reach a clearing on the summit, pull down the summit log out of a tree, see a lot of entries talking about how great it was to visit Connecticut’s highest and then they turn around thinking they’ve visited Connecticut’s highest point.

This flash panorama movie was photographed on Columbus Day, October, 2000 and taken below the summit. My pet golden Zephyr is on the trail. Click on the item to navigate right and left.
