Comments
Comments: As stated above, the trails could use some major work. Also, if doing Cabot, it is worth heading to the Horn for some incredible views and a great spot to eat! Don't miss it! Other than that plan to be walking through tall grass and bushes, possibly wear long pants. I have a few scratches. Bring a machete to whack out the trail?
