Highpoint rank by height: 36th. About 20 - 25 minutes into your hike (assuming you hike at about 2 miles per hour/ 1000 feet elevation gain per hour), you'll come to a very large cairn on the top of a rocky point. This is the top of Round Mountain, at 2,296 feet (700 m) elevation. There are several faint trails and one more frequently used trail that leave this point. Continue north from the cairn (this is the direction you were going when you arrived) on the more frequently used trail and watch for the red blazes to make sure you're on the right path. Since that was the top of Round Mountain, you have nowhere to go now but down! If you looked to the northwest while standing on Round Mountain, you saw another rounded mountain that was higher. This is Mt. Frissell. However, you won't be hiking all the way to the top of Mt. Frissell to reach the highpoint of Connecticut. The top of Mt. Frissell is in Massachusetts. So, you'll be climbing very near the top, but then dropping down a bit to be on the Connecticut side of the mountain.
