Comments
Comments: Led a large AMC group and tracked out much of the route (some was already done, thank you!). We did miss a turn on Kilkenny Ridge trail and took a detour at the far end of Unknown Pond. A following group corrected the track. If you see a divergence, take the RIGHT fork, or enjoy the scenic route bushwhack!

We wore snowshoes all day. Snow got soft by the afternoon. Crust was fairly strong (just a few inches of sinking) so not hard hiking even off trail.
