Parking off Powisset Street in the Noanet Woodlands parking area. There are several routes to get to Powisset Peak which is actually part of the adjacent Hale Reservation. This option has you going north then circumnavigating a small rise followed by Strawberry Hill. Wonderful colonial era rock walls are everywhere! Continue around Strawberry Hill, back to the south, then work your way up to the summit of Powisset Peak. A beautiful rock ledge awaits you with excellent views of the surrounding area, including Noanet Peak to the northwest. Find your way down to Powisset Street and back to the parking lot. A great trek!

Took a nice trail run through Noanet then around to Strawberry Hill. There is a way up Strawberry Hill but I passed on that today. Continued south and back to Powisset Peak which is a wonderful little rock ledge with great views north and of Noanet Peak in the distance. This is a nice little trail run.
