Diamond Hill with Bill - February 8, 2015

Bill climbing to the cliff
Bill and I were supposed to do a RICKA message board hike in Chepachet, but it got cancelled due to weather.  Fortunately Bill was still up for a trip, so we met at Diamond Hill for the loop around the “rock”.

Bill said that he was looking for something with "a little elevation", so this seemed like a good choice.  We took my usual route through the woods to the right of the bandstand and headed down to the old quarry.  The snow was unbroken, and in places waist deep as we worked out way up to the cliff.  It was definitely a workout, but worth it for the views.

From there we headed back down and took the switchback road up to the top of the hill.  Fortunately, the trail along this section was broken or it would have been a real workout.  It also made it easy to find the trail along the road that I can never find on my own.
