What is the highest drivable mountain in Connecticut? It is a thoroughly forested area of the Bald Mountain near the town of Norfolk. The #MMUSA crew reached an elevation of 1,616 feet above sea level after some searching. This is not to be confused with the highest elevation in the state. That designation goes to the southern slope of Mount Frissell. However, the top of Mount Frissell is in Massachusetts and this areas is not accessible by vehicle.
The towns and cities on Connecticut are loaded with history, architecture, and monuments. Nathan and Andre took in as much of the local surroundings as possible within the short time allowed by the crazy #MMUSA schedule.
The top of the Bald Mountain was free of any traffic and a little spooky.
