Was caching with a friends and located this benchmark. It was a beautiful day. My coordinants were N 43.26.331 W 071.00.922.

Found triangulation station on a gorgeous autumn-like day. I've never seen one placed by a state government before. My co-ords were N 43.26.331 W 071.00.922 with and accuracy of 12'.

Found this benchmark, but the coordinates are a little off. The marker on the summit was really at 43.26.332N 071.00.922W. At the coordinates given on this site, there was a triangular shaped rock sticking out of the ground (not at the summit) that doesn't say anything on it. It is on private property, but we obtain permission from the owner. There is a trail from his driveway, marked "absolutely no motorized vehicles" that goes up to the summit. He allowed us to park in his driveway and hike up the trail. The views were fantastic. On a clear day, I'm sure they're even better. The picture here doesn't do it justice.

DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1878 (ETQ) TO REACH GO FROM MIDDLETON VILLAGE 3 MILES ON THE MOUNTAIN ROAD TO MILTON WHICH LEADS DIRECTLY OVER THE SUMMIT. SUMMIT IS BARE AND LEDGY. STATION IS MARKED BY TRIANGLE.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in May 1998.
  • The orthometric height was scaled from a topographic map.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
