In addition to the blue-blazed trail, both red- and yellow-blazed trails ascend to the ridgeline of Mt. Lamentation. The yellow trail ascends from the white-blazed trail to a poorly marked intersection with the Mattabesett Trail near one of the best overlooks. The red trail turns sharply away from the blue trail as it passes a deep canal cut through stone, passes by an old shelter, and intersects the blue-blazed trail at the ridge line.

Just did this on Sept 9th with ideal weather. Brought the whole fam - wife & 3 kids (9, 7, and 5). Not too tough for the 9 and 7 year olds. Great views at the top - and some decent slopes on the up and down. Not too hard or long but good challenge for the fam.
