RAGGED MOUNTAIN, WEST HARTFORD
Ragged Mountain Cliffs are a Connecticut gem and have been a popular climbing and hiking destination since the 1960′s when access was opened through trail construction. Ever since then people have been climbing in the Connecticut area, developing their skills, and pushing the sport to new limits. As climbing grows in popularity it becomes even more important to preserve the land for future generations. The Ragged Mountain Foundation (RMF) was formed to…
“maintain and preserve the Ragged Mountain property to ensure a balance for the conservation of a valuable natural resource with access for safe, responsible recreational use; to participate with recognized conservation organizations to further responsible recreational use; and to serve as an advocate for climbing access.”
Through this mission the Ragged Mountain Foundation (RMF) has been able to secure fifty-six acres of land (which includes a nationally known climbing area), and preserve access for climbers and hikers.
