Talcott Mountain from Nod Road

This is an old photo from 1974
But still should look the same as this every
Heublein Tower is part of the Talcott Mtn. State Park off Route 185
(Simsbury Road) and is near the Avon/Simsbury line.
The mountain is about 900 feet high there and is part of the
Metacomet Ridge trap rock hills ( traversed by the Metacomet Trail)
which go North-South.

Golf Course of Tower Ridge Country Club ( was called Cliffside )

This is a close-up of the cliff - the trail goes along
the top up there, with a beautiful view.
The dark hole on the left is
King Philip's Cave.
