Comments
Comments: On Saturday we took Unknown Pond trail from York Pond Road to Unknown Pond Tentsite. We reached the tentsite by early afternoon. We were concerned about availability on a holiday weekend but only two sites were taken. By evening the tentsite was overflowing. The tentsite cleared out by mid morning so we upgraded from site 4 to site 1. Sunday we hiked the Kilkenny Ridge Trail to The Horn. It was mostly dry and very easy to follow. A handful of hikers and one dog came to the summit. The first snow was found on the Kilkenny Ridge Trail between The Horn and The Bulge. For the most part, the snow was buried under blow-downs. There were two short sections of snow on the trail between The Horn and Mt. Cabot. Traction was not needed. We saw three other people on Mt. Cabot. One person was staying at the cabin.
